C172 - EMG Skills Workshop: Basic

Event Time: Wednesday April 26, 2017 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Ezgi Tiryaki MD, FAAN
Description: The program consists of four sessions covering: motor nerve conduction studies; sensory nerve conduction studies; nerve conduction techniques such as repetitive nerve stimulation, F waves, and H reflexes; and needle EMG. In small, hands-on group sessions, faculty will first demonstrate and then supervise attendees performing these techniques. The presentations will also cover the clinical utility and technical pitfalls of these techniques. Attendees rotate through each of the sessions. Participants should be familiar with basic electrodiagnostic skills for the evaluation of common neuromuscular problems. The course is designed for practicing neurologists who wish to update basic skills in these important techniques and residents in training who either are rotating or have rotated through the EMG lab in their training program.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to describe fundamentals of nerve conduction and needle examination; list electrodiagnostic approaches to common problems encountered in the EMG laboratory; and recognize common technical pitfalls and artifacts.
CME Credits: 4
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice
