C26 - Clinical EMG I: Principles and Practice of NCS and Needle EMG

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Ruple Laughlin MD, FAAN
Description: Accurate electrodiagnostic testing and interpretation is based on a solid understanding of functional nerve and muscle anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology in addition to technical considerations. This course is the first in a three-part series of complementary courses aimed at enhancing the understanding and application of EMG to clinical practice. Clinical EMG I serves as the foundation for understanding the basics of nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography. Technical factors, pitfalls, and clues to pathophysiology will be highlighted throughout the course. This program complements C37: Clinical EMG II and C55: Clinical EMG III, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to have a basic understanding into the origins and acquisition of compound muscle and sensory nerve action potentials and late responses, as well as how to use patterns of firing to assist in spontaneous and voluntary waveform recognition and interpretation.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
