C12 - Neuromuscular Junction Disorders I: Myasthenia Gravis, Ocular, and MuSK Myasthenia

Event Time: Saturday April 22, 2017 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Laura Tormoehlen MD
Description: Faculty will provide current perspectives on the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and care of patients with myasthenia gravis, ocular and MuSK myasthenia. Case presentations demonstrate a practical approach to identification, evaluation, and management of common and more challenging patients in the clinical setting. This program complements C19: Neuromuscular Junction Disorders II: Toxins, Lambert-Eaton Syndrome, and Less Common Disorders of Neuromuscular Transmission, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the diagnosis and management of patients with myasthenia gravis and related disorders; learn to critically select therapies; and be able to distinguish myasthenia gravis, MuSK myasthenia, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and recognize the less common disorders of neuromuscular transmission.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
