9781888799361: Manual of Nerve Conduction Studies

Now for the first time, practitioners have access to a huge database of normal values, developed using the most modern scientific protocols, for virtually any patient population! Normal ranges take into account age, sex, height and body mass index for a wide range of demographic groups to provide a complete set of reliable values for everyday clinical practice. For each nerve fiber, the author provides the nerve root level, the peripheral nerve level, and the plexus pathway. In addition, for the most common studies performed, normal ranges are provided for onset latency, amplitude, area, duration of the wave, and nerve conduction velocity across various segments. Other benefits of this outstanding book: * Provides helpful hints for performing each study * Covers the latest, most up-to-date techniques for conducting nerve sensory tests * Codifies the acceptable differences in latency, amplitude, nerve conduction velocity, etc. between nerves of the same or opposite limbs, allowing for a more precise diagnosis * Provides precise written descriptions as well as schematic depiction of electrode placements * Includes typical waveform appearance for the most common studies * Offers a concise list of references and suggested readings for each study * Includes advantages and pitfalls of alternative techniques

Review:

"Its wider appeal for the novice or junior practising electrophysiologist is its descriptions and diagrams detailing electrode positioning and examples of typical, expected waveforms. It is for this reason that I might find myself with this book at the bedside, especially for some of those more obscure cutaneous sensory nerves..." -- Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry 2001 Pour la premiere fois, le neurophysiologiste dispose d'un ouvrage donnant des valeurs de references normales des differents nerfs, valeurs etablies a partir d'examens pratiques dans les meilleures conditions. Pour ces valeurs, differents parametres, age, sexe, poids, BMI (body mass index) interviennent et doivent etre pris en consideration. Presente de facon tres systematique : membre superieur, membre inferieur, segment moteur et segment sensitif, puis les nerfs craniens et la stimulation des racines. Cet ouvrage, tres simple et clair, illustre, pour chaque nerf, les points d'examen sur la page de droite du livre et sur la page de gauche presente le texte avec description de la methode et tous les resultats enregistres, valeur moyenne, deviation standard, distribution et references de la litterature pour completer l'information si necessaire. Ce mode de presentation est le meme et systematique pour tous les nerfs. Il s'agit donc d'une source capitale d'informations pour le neurophysiologiste praticien, ayant deja une certaine habitude des examens electromyographiques mais qui desire garder sous la main toutes les donnees du sujet normail. -- Th. de Barsy
