" ""This is a very useful board review for the neurophysiology sections in several board certification examinations. Anyone preparing for these examinations should have access to these prototypical questions and the explanations of the answers."" --Doody's Reviews This high-yield, illustrated clinical neurophysiology board review is a comprehensive resource for assessing and refining the knowledge tested on multiple board examinations. Written by authors who are collectively board certified in all of the areas covered, the book is a valuable study tool for candidates preparing for certification or recertification in clinical neurophysiology, neuromuscular medicine, epilepsy, sleep medicine, and neurology. Using structured question formats typically encountered on boards, this comprehensive review allows users to assess their knowledge in a wide range of topics, provides rationales for correct answers, and explains why the other choices are incorrect. A unique ìPearlsì section at the end of the book allows for quick review of the most important concepts prior to exam day. Clinical Neurophysiology Board Review Q&A contains 801 questions with answers and detailed explanations. The book is divided into eight chapters covering anatomy and physiology, electronics and instrumentation, nerve conduction studies and EMG, EEG, evoked potentials and intraoperative monitoring, sleep studies, ethics and safety, and advanced topics including QEEG, MEG, TES, autonomic testing, and more. Liberal use of image-based questions illustrating the full spectrum of neurophysiologic tests and findings build interpretive skills. Questions are randomized and include both case-related questions in series and stand-alone items to familiarize candidates with the question types and formats they will find on the exam.

Reflecting a modern approach to electromyography, this edition includes new chapters on normal and abnormal neurophysiology, electromyography in children, and unusual studies. There is an emphasis on new techniques, needle stimulation and recording, and the use of electromyography in prognosis and management. Computer applications are integrated into the text, and there are updated discussions of carpal tunnel syndrome, radiculopathy and entrapments - including prognosis.
