Overview

Now in its Fourth Edition, this text gives physiatry and neurology residents a comprehensive, practical introduction to electromyography. Section I reviews the anatomy and physiology of nerve problems in relation to the planning and performance of electrodiagnostic procedures. Section II provides technical information on electrophysiology, instrumentation, and specific techniques, with digital photographs showing important surface anatomy. Section III guides physicians through various clinical EMG problems, beginning with the patient's symptoms and proceeding through electrodiagnostic evaluation and diagnosis. This edition includes over 500 new illustrations.

A bound-in CD-ROM contains digital videoclips of EMG recordings and test questions that can be submitted for CME credit.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph M Ihm, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a concise guide to the basics of understanding and performing an electrodiagnostic evaluation. The previous edition was published in 1997.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide information on the underlying principles of electromyography, and to provide guidance in its practice in the evaluation of patients with nerve and muscle pathology. These worthwhile objectives are accomplished in this book. A DVD-ROM is included, which provides video recordings of electromyographic cases with accompanying audio.
Audience: This book is appropriate as an introductory text for student or resident physicians who wish to learn about electromyography. Parts of the book may be useful for practicing physicians, such as for a guide to muscle surface anatomy or for reference values for common nerve conduction studies. The editors and contributing authors are well known in the field.
Features: The technical aspects of electromyography are covered, including electrophysiology and instrumentation. Chapters on muscle surface anatomy and nerve conduction techniques, including reference values, serve as a reference that can be used regularly. In addition, individual chapters cover approaches to specific conditions commonly seen in electrodiagnostic medicine, such as entrapment neuropathies, myopathies, peripheral neuropathies and radiculopathies. A DVD-ROM with electromyography cases complements the text and aids in the learning process. While the chapters are generally well written, the order of the chapters in the beginning of the book is not intuitive and feels awkward.
Assessment: Overall, this is a worthwhile introductory text in electromyography, similar in breadth to Campbell's Essentials of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1998). In addition to providing fundamental information about electromyography, it can serve as a reference text on muscle surface anatomy and nerve conduction techniques. It is not meant to be a complete or exhaustive text on electrodiagnostic medicine.
