C205 - Peripheral Neuropathy I: Anatomical Basis and Acquired Demyelinating Neuropathies

Event Time: Thursday May 9, 2019 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG), Foundations in Clinical Neurology
Director(s): David Herrmann MD, FAAN
Description: Peripheral neuropathies are common. They may be acquired or inherited and acute, subacute, or chronic. Peripheral neuropathies are increasingly amenable to therapy, but the potential morbidity and cost of therapy is often high, emphasizing the importance of prompt, efficient, and accurate diagnosis, and evidence-based management. The course faculty will provide an overview of the clinical features, classification, diagnosis and management of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) and its variants, mimics including acute nutritional neuropathies and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). This program complements Peripheral Neuropathy II: Update on Diabetic, Immune Axonal, and Hematologic-related Neuropathies and Peripheral Neuropathy III: Genetic Neuropathies: Molecular Diagnosis and Treatment Perspectives, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to describe the clinical features, diagnostic approach/criteria and treatment paradigms for Guillain-Barre syndrome and its variants, acute nutritional neuropathies, and CIDP.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge
