Workshop Description

The practical workshops are 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 international leaders and conducted by equipment and staff of the various companies of devices which will attend at contribute to the congress.

Course Learning Objectives

Upon conclusion of the various programs, 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, IONM, autonomic

tests, sleep studies, vestibular testing) in the evaluation of patients with disorders of the central nervous system.

Intended Audience

This course is intended for neurologists and physiatrists interested in the basics of clinical

EMG, EEG, and Neurophysiology. Attendance at theses practical workshops does not require any paiement
