42nd Annual Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine

Bluemle Life Sciences Building
233 S. 10th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107
This annual conference is designed to modernize the electrodiagnostic knowledge and skills of physiatrists, neurologists, and allied health professional who treat a myriad of neurological and neuromuscular diseases in their practice. The purpose of this course is to describe the necessity of using both the clinical and electrical findings in generating a comprehensive diagnostic report. Participants will improve skills in identifying spontaneous and voluntary waveforms and recruitment patterns, differentiating axonopathies from myelinopathies, identifying anterior horn cell and neuromuscular junction diseases and myopathies, and coding for services provided. A few selective diseases and injuries will be presented to achieve the purpose of the course. The approach taken in this course includes didactic presentation, case studies, and audience participation. Case studies will be presented in each teaching session to reinforce new information and best clinical practices.
Participants are expected to have prior knowledge of the following topics, which represent prerequisite knowledge on which the course will build. These topics therefore will not be covered in the course:
- cervical and lumbosacral root innervations
- the anatomy and sensory and motor innervations of the median, ulnar, radial, peroneal, tibial, medial and lateral antebrachial cutaneous, dorsal ulnar cutaneous, sural, and superficial peroneal nerves
- the conduction techniques for the above nerves.
