Electromyography (EMG), Electroencephalography (EEG), and Neurophysiology in Clinical Practice 2021 - LIVESTREAM

March 14, 2021 to March 20, 2021

Course Directors: Devon Rubin, MD and Jeffrey Britton, MD

March 14 - 20, 2021 - Livestream

This CME course offers a review and update of techniques and topics pertaining to the practice of clinical neurophysiology in the evaluation and diagnosis of a variety of neurologic disorders. The course focuses on techniques and pitfalls, along with clinical correlation of various neurophysiological tests used for the evaluation of patients with peripheral nerve and neuromuscular disorders, epilepsy, central nervous system disorders, and sleep disorders. The areas of neurophysiology include: basic physiology; central and peripheral nervous system pathophysiology; nerve conduction studies techniques and interpretation, needle EMG technique and interpretation, EEG interpretation; evoked potentials; sleep disorders evaluation, and intraoperative monitoring.

 Course Highlights:

  • Clinically relevant updates you can apply immediately to your practice
  • Demonstrations and skills assessment related to nerve conduction studies, needle EMG, and EEG interpretation
  • Faculty includes members of the clinical neurophysiology staff of Mayo Clinic and faculty of the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine from the Departments of Neurology in Jacksonville, Florida; Rochester, Minnesota; and Scottsdale, Arizona

Three options are offered for registration:

Option 1: EMG, EEG and Neurophysiology in Clinical Practice
Sunday, March 14 – Saturday, March 20, 2021

Option 2: EMG and Neurophysiology in Clinical Practice
Sunday, March 14 – Thursday, March 18, 2021

Target Audience

This course is intended for neurologists, physiatrists and physicians specializing in and practicing clinical neurophysiology.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop a logical approach to the use of standard clinical electrophysiological techniques in the evaluation of common and uncommon neuromuscular disorders.
  • Identify technical pitfalls associated with NCS and needle EMG and understand methods to correct and minimize technical problems.
  • Interpret the findings and clinical significance of abnormalities on nerve conduction studies.
  • Recognize and interpret the significance of various EMG waveforms on needle EMG.
  • Describe the utility and technical aspects of different nerve conduction studies and muscles to be examined during an electrodiagnostic study.
  • Identify the normal and variant EEG patterns of adult and pediatric patients
  • Recognize technical pitfalls and artifacts associated with EEG studies
  • Interpret the findings and clinical significance of abnormalities on inpatient and outpatient EEG studies.
  • Integrate the various clinical neurophysiology studies (evoked potentials, sleep studies) in the evaluation of patients with disorders of the central nervous system.

Attendance at any Mayo Clinic course does not indicate or guarantee competence or proficiency in the skills, knowledge or performance of any care or procedure(s) which may be discussed or taught in this course.
