Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Renee M. Pazdan, MD(Walter Reed Army Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a book on the technical aspects of electrodiagnostic medicine and the clinical aspects of neuromuscular disorders. It provides relatively comprehensive coverage of topics while still being concise and manageable to read. The first edition was published in 1997.
Purpose: The authors' stated purpose is to provide a practical book for those in residency or postgraduate training that covers all of the basic concepts that are needed to competently understand and interpret electrodiagnostic studies. This book fills a niche by providing relatively comprehensive coverage of all topics related to electrodiagnostic medicine while still being accessible, rather than a large, unwieldy text that would be used more as a reference.
Audience: This book is written for those studying neurophysiology, specifically electrodiagnostic medicine and neuromuscular diseases. The authors' credentials are excellent and the material is accurate and factual — their authority on the subject is unquestionable. The target audience is residents and fellows in training, though anyone in this field would benefit from the information and illustrations in this book. It can provide a good review for those already practicing electrodiagnostic medicine, as well as serve as a nice reference tool for general neurologists and physiatrists to help them interpret and comprehend within a clinical construct the EMG/NCS's that are performed on their patients by other providers.
Features: Approximately one-third of the book covers fundamentals of EMG/NCS's, including basics as well as more complex techniques and pitfalls/common errors to avoid. The remainder of the book covers clinical-electrophysiologic correlations. A large section of this portion is devoted to focal neuropathies, which are covered very comprehensively. However, other sections such as those on polyneuropathy and myopathy, are given a more cursory overview. Highlights of the book include a plethora of illustrations and photos. Particularly useful are the photos that demonstrate positioning for common nerve conduction studies and anatomy for electromyography. Another unique feature is the CD-ROM which accompanies, and nicely complements, this book. As the authors point out, much of electrodiagnostic medicine is visual and auditory. Though it certainly does not replace the necessary hands-on experience, the CD is an excellent teaching tool to introduce students to the practical aspects of electromyography.
Assessment: Overall, I found this book and accompanying CD of very high quality and utility. I believe it will serve its intended role very well as an educational tool for residents and fellows studying electrodiagnostic medicine. There are few other books that combine the technical and clinical aspects as well in such a concise manner, and though other CDs are available, the combination of 2 in 1 makes this a bargain! The additions made in this second edition are certainly of benefit, with the added CD as the highlight.
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
