Overview

The leading reference book in the field of electrodiagnostic medicine just got better with this remarkable new edition, which is thoroughly revised and updated. Written by three of the leading authorities in the field along with several expert contributors, this comprehensive textbook continues to provide the fundamentals as well as the practical, clinical applications of electrodiagnostic medicine for novices and experienced practitioners alike.

• The text is complemented by a superb CD-ROM containing videos of waveforms

• The text is clear and concise, and enhanced by hundreds of illustrations and tables.

• "The best single reference book currently available in the field." — Excerpt from a review of the first edition of this book from the New England Journal of Medicine

• New chapters include Heriditary Neuropathies, Quantitative Sensory Testing, and Chemical Denervation

• All chapters from previous edition were extensively reworked and several topics (myopathies, polyneuropathies) were expanded to generate multiple chapters

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Jeffrey L. Young
This is an excellent new book on electrodiagnostic medicine that incorporates the contributions of experts from multiple academic centers across the United States. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive work on electrodiagnostic medicine for both novices and experienced practitioners. This goal is achieved. Essentials of neurophysiology, pathophysiology, techniques, and interpretation of electrodiagnostic findings are presented in a lucid manner. More importantly, the book reinforces the concept that the electromyographer's thought processes are as important as the physical performance of the examination -- this is not another how to book. Targeted for both beginners and seasoned electrodiagnosticians, this book will be useful as a major reference text for many laboratories. Although the book's expansiveness may initially intimidate the beginner, its logical organization and clarity of style make it extremely user friendly. The authors and contributors are all recognized authorities in their respective areas. The book includes clear illustrations and useful tables and is well referenced. A particularly useful feature for beginners is the chapter that includes the AAEM Glossary of Terms in Clinical Electromyography and illustrations of selected waveforms. The sections on instrumentation and how to approach the electrodiagnostic consultation should be required reading for all trainees. This is a valuable book for teachers and students of electrodiagnostic medicine. It serves both as a reservoir of basic information and a ready reference for more advanced techniques. This book will be an important addition to the electromyographer's library.
