Atlas of Electromyography

Product Description

The Atlas of Electromyography is a visually alluring book which provides high quality anatomical illustrations of skeletal muscles that include nerve, plexus, and root supply; photographs of each muscle in healthy subjects to enable the practitioner to identify the optimum site of EMG needle insertion; clinical features of the major conditions affecting peripheral nerves; and electrodiagnostic strategies for confirming suspected lesions of the peripheral nervous system.The atlas is divided into sections on the major peripheral nerves. Each nerve is illustrated and its anatomy reviewed in the text. The authors provide a detailed outline of the clinical conditions and entrapment syndromes that affect the nerve, including a list of etiologies, clinical features, and electrodiagnostic strategies used for each symdrome. Each muscle supplied by the peripheral nerve is shown as an anatomical illustration with a corresponding human photograph.

The needle insertion point is identified in both the anatomical illustration and the corresponding photographs. This assures that pertinent bone, muscular, and soft tissue landmarks can be used to guide the electromyographer to a specific point on the skin. Potential pitfalls associated with the needle insertion are added, usually noting adjacent muscles or structures that may be mistakenly entered. Clinical correlates pertinent to the muscle being examined are also provided. The tlas of Electromyography serves as an anatomical guide for practitioners of electromyography and neurologists, as well as residents i neurology, physical medicine, and rehabilitation.

Plum and Posner's Diagnosis of Stupor and Coma

Product Description

Delirium, stupor and coma are common clinical states that confront clinicians in almost every medical specialty. With appropriate diagnosis and treatment, coma can often be treated successfully. Conversely, delay in diagnosis and treatment may be lethal. This monograph provides an update on the clinical approach that was laid out in the previous 3 editions. It describes an approach for the physician at the bedside to diagnose and treat alterations of consciousness, based on the pathophysiologic principles. The book begins with a description of the physiology of consciousness and the pathophysiology of disorders of consciousness. It continues with a description of the approach to a patient with a disorder of consciousness, emphasizing the bedside examination, but including the use of modern imaging techniques. The important structural and metabolic causes of coma are reviewed in detail. It then describes the emergency treatment, both medical and surgical, of patients with specific disorders of consciousness and their prognosis. New chapters describe the approach to the diagnosis of brain death and the clinical physiology of the vegetative state and minimally conscious state, as well as the ethics of dealing with such patients and their families.The book is aimed at medical students and residents, in fields from internal medicine and pediatrics to emergency medicine, surgery, neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry, who are likely to encounter patients with disordered states of consciousness. It includes historical background and basic neurophysiology that is important for those in the clinical neurosciences, but also lays out a practical approach to the comatose the patient that is an important part of the repertoire of all clinicians who provide emergency care for patients with disorders of consciousness
