This basic manual is a good addition to the library of any electromyography laboratory. As in the previous editions, the basic illustrations and explanations for the procedures are easy to understand. Alternate methods for specific nerve or reflex studies are also included. In addition, the introduction supplies basic understanding of techniques, equipment, and discussion of possible pitfalls with neurophysiological testing.
The book is divided into sections initially by anatomic location and then by specific study types. A short chapter reviews motor nerve conduction studies in the pediatric population. This includes useful graphs of normal results to allow improved interpretation of these studies. Latency reflexes, blink reflexes, and sympathetic skin responses are all included in a well-organized chapter.
The somatosensory evoked potentials chapter has been expanded to look at movement-related potentials and transbrachial plexus potentials. New chapters include the intraoperative monitoring use of somatosensory evoked potentials, auditory and visual evoked poten
