Clinical Electromyography: Nerve Conduction Studies

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2003 - Medical - 848 pages
Established as a staple reference in the EMG laboratory, Clinical Electromyography: Nerve Conduction Studies is now in its revised, updated Third Edition. Dr. Oh, a world-renowned authority, provides encyclopedic coverage of current nerve conduction techniques and their clinical uses.

This edition's new chapter on special nerve conduction techniques describes studies such as motor unit number estimation and muscle fiber conduction velocity and discusses their clinical value and limitations. Coverage also includes new nerve conduction techniques and recent developments in electromyographic diagnosis of immunologically-mediated neuropathies, segmental demyelination, mild carpal tunnel syndrome, and neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome. More than 500 illustrations complement the text.
