Overview

Diagnose neuromuscular disorders more quickly and accurately with Electromyography and Neuromuscular Disorders: Clinical-Electrophysiologic Correlations, 3rd Edition! State-of-the-art guidance helps you correlate electromyographic and clinical findings and use the latest EMG techniques to their fullest potential.


• Successfully correlate electrodiagnostic findings with key clinical findings
for more confident diagnoses.
Clearly see how to apply what you've learned with abundant case studies throughout the book.
Obtain relevant clinical guidance quickly and easily with an accessible, easy-to-read writing style that's both comprehensive and easy to understand.


• Ensure correct EMG needle placement and avoid neurovascular injuries
by referring to more than 65 detailed, cross-sectional anatomy drawings.
Diagnose many newly defined genetic neuromuscular conditions based on their electrodiagnostic presentation.
Stay up to date with must-know information on iatrogenic complications of electrodiagnostic studies.
Visualize key concepts more easily with a brand-new full-color design, new artwork, and new photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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. "

"This is the much-awaited edition of what has become a standard textbook. The 2 authors are prominent figures in the field of neuromuscular medicine and have been active in resident and fellow education for many years at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

[...] Although I have read the book at least twice, I often find myself referring to the chapters in [Section 6: Clinical-Electrophysiological Complications] while doing complicated studies. [...] The case examples at the end of the chapters are from the authors' experience. For a reader, the interactive discussion of the cases is very helpful in interpreting one's own cases.[...]

Some welcome new features of this edition are its color images and cross-sectional views of muscles in the EMG section. Moreover, the book is now accessible online online for quick reference. Readers can also listen to EMG sounds online instead of installing a CD, which was not always successful with the second edition.

This is a very well-organized and clearly written book. I would recommend this book to all residents and clinical neurophysiology fellows as well as anyone who interprets nerve conduction studies and performs EMGs."

Siddharta Varma, MD; Muscle &Nerve, Volume 48, Issue 2, page 308, August 2013

From The Critics
REVIEWS OF THE LAST EDITION: "Should be a welcome addition to the library of any physician or student who is interested in peripheral nervous system disorders."-Archives of Neurology, review of the text "Highly recommended...An excellent study guide for those preparing for certifying examinations in electrodiagnostic medicine."-Neurology, review of the video companion. Preston and Shapiro provide expanded coverage of nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG) of neuromuscular disorders. The volume includes case examples, updated/new figures, and a summary of normal adult and pediatric values from nerve conduction studies. The two companion CDs feature common EMG waveforms. SciTech Book News, September 2005

"Seldom in the realm of medical texts does one encounter a truly readable and accessible textbook that doesn't sacrifice content for clarity. Such a truly rare feat is accomplished in the most recent incarnation of Electromyography and Neuromuscular Disorders: Clinical Electrophysiologic Correlations by Preston and Shapiro...This book would make a wonderful addition to the library of any neurologist, physiatrist or other physician with an interest in electromyography." - McGill J Med. 2006 July; 9(2): 173
