9781933864631: McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine

"The McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine is a resident-tested curriculum designed to help trainees in PM&ampR and neurology gain competency in basic electrodiagnostic techniques and prepare them to become "functional electrodiagnosticians" on day one of their clinical rotation. The material is broken into discrete units and follows a standardized format. Each study includes bulleted lists of objectives, fundamental concepts, and tips for success. The procedures are presented as illustrated tables with specifics for lead placement, stimulation, sample waveforms, and photographs to guide electrodiagnostic set-ups. Multiple choice questions and answers with explanations follow each unit to reinforce learning. This book is the perfect tool to prepare you for all of your electrodiagnostic studies, either for individual self-directed learning or as part of a structured curriculum.

The McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine is the outgrowth of a course developed at the Kessler Institute in 2004 by a group of residents led by the late Jim McLean. The course was initiated to further the understanding of electrodiagnostic fundamentals and provide hands-on practice for residents. Today the course has been adopted as part of the official curriculum at the Kessler Institute, is taught each spring at the Annual AAP meeting, and is on the curriculum of several other major institutions.

Features of The McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine include:

  • A step-by-step guide for the novice electrodiagnostician presented as a readily implemented course
  • Emphasis on skills and concepts required for success in beginning a clinical rotation
  • Formatted multi-layered didactic approach facilitates independent learning
  • Clear, easy to understand tables and photos illustrate each set-up and study
  • Practical exam and quizzes provide measures for self-assessment and course effectiveness

Review:

Four Stars **** This book offers a concise, well-organized approach to electrodiagnostic education, targeting both learners and instructors. It is filled with high-yield illustrations, charts, and diagrams to supplement the appropriately succinct chapters that address each of the key elements for early electrodiagnostic education. Similar to other books on electrodiagnostic, this one covers core topics essential to forming a strong foundation in the instrumentation, anatomy and physiology, performance of studies, and interpretation of results. It sets itself apart from the others with its focus on promoting both trainees and instructors to engage in the topics with an organized curriculum in place of a simple list of topics to read. The book successfully uses high-yield tables and illustrations to augment the information. This is a high-quality introduction to the performance of electrodiagnostic studies. It targets both trainees and instructors with a well-organized curriculum, an outgrowth of initial efforts by the late Jim McLean, for whom the book is titled. --Doody's Reviews
