C120 - Clinical EMG II: Case-based Clinical Applications of Nerve Conduction Studies and Needle Electromyography

Event Time: Monday May 6, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Ruple Laughlin MD, FAAN
Description: Clinical EMG II serves as the synthesis of neurophysiological and technical concepts taught in Clinical EMG I: Principles and Practice of Nerve Conduction Studies and Needle Examination with the patient encounter. Clinical EMG II: Clinical Applications of NCS and EMG reinforces the utility of electrodiagnosis in evaluation of patient via case-based, interactive presentations encompassing the range of neuromuscular conditions, from myopathy through neuropathies. Utilization of NCS and EMG to neuromuscular junction diseases is stressed in Clinical EMG III. At the conclusion of this program, attendees are invited to "continue the conversation" by engaging in small group conversation with the director and faculty. This program complements Clinical EMG I: Principles and Practice of NCS and Needle EMG and Clinical EMG III: Nerve Conduction Criteria and Electrodiagnostic Approaches, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to demonstrate a how to approach a neuromuscular patient electrodiagnostically and utilize nerve conduction studies and needle examination to evaluate suspected peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, mononeuropathies and radiculopathies. The program will emphasize case-based application of knowledge acquired in Clinical EMG I.
CME Credits: 2
