Explore Current Approaches

This CME course in electrodiagnostic medicine consists of 35 one-hour lectures that focus on a wide range of peripheral nerve diseases. Key sections include focal syndromes, generalized disorders, motor neuron diseases, polyneuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, myopathies and special topics. Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Neuromuscular Disorders – A Comprehensive Review incorporates patient examples to illustrate typical and atypical presentations, and will help you to better:

  • Apply best practices for evaluation of patients presenting with actual or suspected neuromuscular complaints
  • Recognize classic, possible, and unlikely neuromuscular disorders according to clinical symptoms
  • Assess the need of laboratory tests, electrodiagnostic studies, imaging, and muscle and nerve biopsies to establish a diagnosis
  • Illustrate effective management of painful neuropathies
  • Outline strategies to deliver the best care possible to patients with neuromuscular disorders
