Editorial Reviews

Review

"As in their previous editions, the authors successfully provide a comprehensive guide to performing electrodiagnostic studies. In addition, potential pitfalls of such studies are highlighted and example cases help readers to understand the diagnostic approach to complicated patients. New to this edition are the colorful cross-sectional anatomy illustrations that assist readers in proper needle insertion, online videos of EMG waveforms, and updated information on the advances in the field of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine since the 2005 edition. As an added bonus, the book is electronically available and provides a mobile resource for busy clinicians and tech-savvy electromyographers.

This is a valuable resource for anyone embarking on a career in neurophysiology and is a must-have in the EMG lab. The material is well organized with handy tables and wonderful illustrations. Whether reading it from cover to cover or using it as a quick reference, readers will be pleased. " - Elizabeth Ann Mauricio, MD(Mayo Clinic Flordia) Doody 4 stars!

"This is the much-awaited edition of what has become a standard textbook. The 2 authors are prominent figures in the field of neuromuscular medicine and have been active in resident and fellow education for many years at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

[...] Although I have read the book at least twice, I often find myself referring to the chapters in [Section 6: Clinical-Electrophysiological Complications] while doing complicated studies. [...] The case examples at the end of the chapters are from the authors' experience. For a reader, the interactive discussion of the cases is very helpful in interpreting one's own cases.[...]

Some welcome new features of this edition are its color images and cross-sectional views of muscles in the EMG section. Moreover, the book is now accessible online online for quick reference. Readers can also listen to EMG sounds online instead of installing a CD, which was not always successful with the second edition.

 This is a very well-organized and clearly written book. I would recommend this book to all residents and clinical neurophysiology fellows as well as anyone who interprets nerve conduction studies and performs EMGs."

The third edition of this book is a welcome update and includes colored pictures, access to full text & videos on any internet device through ExpertConsult.com and cross-sectional images that guide correct EMG needle placement. As are the previous two editions of the book, the text is easy to read and organized in a very practical fashion with great illustrations. It includes an excellent EMG/NCS atlas and in-depth discussion on the common neuromuscular/EMG cases. I have read the second edition of this book several times and am midway through with this new edition. Every time, I find myself learning from it more and more. This book is an indispensable tool for any one learning the basics of electromyography. I would highly recommend this book to neurology residents, neuromuscular & clinical neurophysiology fellows and practicing neurologists with interest in EMG.

Thorough and yet concise. In-depth readings for when you're studying but supplemented with concise and quick-hitting charts/tables when you just want to quickly look something up (e.g. surface anatomy for EMG, root innervation, etc.). Has really helped organize my NCS/EMG studying.

This book is a must-have for anybody interested in learning about electrodiagnosis and neuromuscular disease. I have used it throughout my training, and I am sure I will continue to refer to this text as a staff.

The first several chapters provide a very clear, understandable explanation of the fundamentals of electrodiagnostic testing. The remainder of the text includes an excellent EMG/NCS atlas, and more detailed discussion of the clinical/electrophysiological features of specific syndromes (i.e. focal neuropathies, polyneuropathy, myopathy, etc).

The third edition of this book is a wonderful update. The EMG atlas now includes cross-sectional images of the muscles, which I have found to be very useful. I could not give this book a higher recommendation.

It is my go to reference book. It has helped me pass my ABEM board exam and recertification exam. You can dowload the e-book version with purchase of the book and the videos of the waveforms in the e-book are very useful for reference and for reviewing for the boards.

Great well written book. I am using this book for my intermediate nerve conduction study class. I also have my Clinical rotation at University Hospital and get to work with the two doctors who wrote this book!

Seems like a definite upgrade over the last version. Pictures are much better, and the muscle diagrams seem like they would be very useful to someone just learning EMGs. I mainly got this so I could give my old version to my tech, but I do like this one better.

"This is going to be painful, isn't it?" is a question often posed by patients about to undergo electrodiagnostic studies, but it's also the rhetorical worry of many faced with the task of reading an electrophysiology textbook. Well, prospective readers, take heart: the answer is a resounding, "no" when armed with a copy of Electromyography and Neuromuscular Disorders: Clinical-Electrophysiologic Correlations. In the third edition of the book, Drs. David C. Preston and Barbara E. Shapiro deliver a go-to resource for trainees and providers who implement electrodiagnostics.

The book is structured in a way that makes sense. First, fundamental concepts of nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG) are clearly conveyed with effective visual aids. Material is then synthesized in a clinical-electrophysiologic correlations section. Organized by condition, such as ulnar neuropathy at the elbow, the chapters within this section discuss relevant anatomy, clinical presentations, etiologies, differential diagnoses, and electrophysiologic evaluations with recommended approaches and expected findings. Illustrative cases at the end of chapters emphasize key lessons and serve as useful self-assessments. Suggested readings are also shared. The authors thereby invite readers to actively participate, practice, and further explore critical ideas.

However, the book is more than instructive; it's insightful. Drs. Preston and Shapiro draw on years of professional experience to provide readers with practical tools including a way to introduce testing to patients, tips for performing technically sound studies, and guidance for avoiding pitfalls.

A great resource for electromyographers. I own many EMG books, including the previous edition, and I believe this book is the most useful that I have. I particularly like the cross section anatomy pictures of muscles and adjacent structures.
