Electromyography (EMG), Electroencephalography (EEG), in Clinical Practice Sunday, January 29 - Saturday, February 4, 2017
Course Directors:Devon Rubin, M.D. and Jeffrey Britton, M.D.
This course is designed as a review of techniques and topics pertaining to Clinical Neurophysiology which includes: basic physiology; pathophysiology; EEG; evoked potentials; EMG; movement disorders; and intraoperative monitoring. There is a focus on clinical correlation of various neurophysiological tests used for the evaluation of patients with epilepsy, sleep disorders, movement disorders, peripheral nerve, and neuromuscular disorders. Presentations will be made by members of the 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.

This course is designed for Neurologists, physiatrists, and physicians specializing in and practicing clinical neurophysiology.
Upon conclusion of this program, 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 EMG waveforms on needle EMG.
- Identify technical pitfalls associated with EEG and the normal and variant patterns of pediatric and adult patients.
- Interpret the findings and clinical significance of abnormalities on EEG studies.
- Integrate the various clinical neurophysiology studies (evoked potentials, autonomic tests, sleep studies) in the evaluation of patients with disorders of the central nervous system.
