A concise and practical guide to the electrodiagnostic procedures in current use for the investigation of patients with neuromuscular disease. Covers basic and clinical aspects of these diseases and related electrodiagnostic techniques, with special sections focusing on nerves in the upper limbs, nerves in the lower limbs, cranial nerves and the central nervous system. Third edition of this classic text - designed for students and neurologists who occasionally use EMG and a quick reference for experienced electromyographers - contains seven all-new chapters of expanded clinical materials and a useful and complete glossary.ContentsSECTION 1 INTRODUCTION: Electrodiagnostic Methods for the Study of Nerve and Muscle. SECTION 2 BASIC ASPECTS: Aspects of Nerve and Muscle Physiology. Properties and Functional Organization of Motor Units. Electromyographic Apparatus. General Aspects of Electromyography. Nerve Conduction Studies: Basic Principles and Pathologic Correlations. Other Electrodiagnostic Techniques for the Evaluation of Neuromuscular Disorders. Electrophysiologic Evaluation of Selected Aspects of the Central and Autonomic Nervous Systems. SECTION 3 CLINICAL and ELECTRODIAGNOSTIC ASPECTS: Clinical Aspects of Electromyography.
