Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Elizabeth Ann Mauricio, MD (Mayo Clinic Florida)
Description: "This is a comprehensive review of the clinical approach to neurophysiology. The fundamentals of electrodiagnostic studies are beautifully relayed in an organized and easy-to-read manner. The authors effectively portray both proper technique and interpretation of the electrodiagnostic findings within the context of the history and physical examination of each patient. "
Purpose: The purpose is to illustrate the basic concepts needed to perform, understand, and interpret electrodiagnostic studies. This book will serve as a platform upon which the novice will build a greater understanding of neurophysiology and as a valuable reference for the experienced clinician.
Audience: "The intended audience includes neurologists in training as well as practicing physicians and experienced electromyographers. "
Features: As in their previous editions, the authors successfully provide a comprehensive guide to performing electrodiagnostic studies. In addition, potential pitfalls of such studies are highlighted and example cases help readers to understand the diagnostic approach to complicated patients. New to this edition are the colorful cross-sectional anatomy illustrations that assist readers in proper needle insertion, online videos of EMG waveforms, and updated information on the advances in the field of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine since the 2005 edition. As an added bonus, the book is electronically available and provides a mobile resource for busy clinicians and tech-savvy electromyographers.
Assessment: "This is a valuable resource for anyone embarking on a career in neurophysiology and is a must-have in the EMG lab. The material is well organized with handy tables and wonderful illustrations. Whether reading it from cover to cover or using it as a quick reference, readers will be pleased. "
