C55 - Clinical EMG III: Nerve Conduction Criteria and Electrodiagnostic Approaches

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Mark Bromberg MD, PhD, 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. This program complements C26: Clinical EMG I: Principles and Practice of NCS and Needle EMG and C37: Clinical EMG II, 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
