A Vulcan technique that applies pressure to the base of the neck, immediately rendering the subject unconscious but ultimately unharmed. The technique seems to work on most humanoid species, however few...
direct reticular stimulation
Medical procedure which applies electrical energy directly to a humanoid nervous system in an effort to revive neural activity, using a neural stimulator device. When Natasha Yar was critically wounded...
The instrument used to increase neural activity in the central nervous system of a dying humanoid brain. When Natasha Yar was critically wounded by Armus, a neural stimulator was used as part of direct...

Deprival of sleep from the "rapid-eye movement" phase restricts dreaming and causes the loss of concentration and cognitive abilities. Paranoia, hallucinations, and insanity are all common symptoms. While...
An experimental rybo-therapy "decades ahead" of standard treatment for neural metaphasic shock in 2368. According to Dr. Toby Russell, who used it in vain aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise on a survivor from...
Developed by neurogeneticist Doctor Toby Russell, an experimental medical device able to translate a particular genetic code into a specific set of replication directions which instruct the replicative...
A drug used to treat neural metaphasic shock when a patient's blood pressure is too low to use the standard remedy, leporazine. But Dr. Russell assumed a severely injured U.S.S. Denver survivor in triage...
Used to stabilize a patient undergoing seizures or shock. Dr. Crusher used 2 cc in a hypospray on Captain Picard when he went into convulsions amid signs of massive body tissue failure when the Kataanan...
In biomedical applications, a radiated energy used to accelerate cellular growth -- especially useful to accelerate the growth of a cloned individual. This technique was employed by Dr. Julian Bashir on...
Nominally a perceptual dysfunction in which aural and visual stimuli, as well as other communication and comprehension function, are incorrectly processed by the brain. Typically aphasia is associated...
Bajoran Medical Index
neural imaging scan
Medical diagnostic scan employed to test the acuity of a patient's visual cortex. In 2369, on station Deep Space Nine, Chief Medical Officer Doctor Julian Bashir performed a neural imaging scan on Chief...
test sample 37-D (delta)
One of the many ineffective samples run while a fatigued Doctor Bashir races to find an antidote to the aphasia-like virus and analyzed just as he realizes he has the disease. The computer's summary of...
DNA reference scan
Medical procedure to test and confirm the identity of an individual by matching DNA patterns with those on file. Kajada, a Kobliad security officer, requested Doctor Julian Bashir perform a DNA reference...
Otherwise undescribed disease which approximated death in a patient -- possibly a Bajoran if Doctor Bashir's off-station medical mission is short-ranged -- and even fooled a tricorder until Doctor Bashir...
A Federation medical procedure commonly used to slow down a critically injured patient's biological functions, thereby allowing more time to diagnose and repair the problem. On stardate 46922 Dr. Julian...
A disease whose only known cases resulted from a mining accident at the Gallitepp forced labor camp for Bajorans, sometime prior to its liberation in 2358. Dr. Bashir did not hear of it until Marritza's...
