"Dr. Campbell's broad knowledge of the field, keen understanding of human nature, clinical experience, and expository talent makes for lively reading. Authoritative, innovative and engaging, this is a great resource for those in the field and for those training residents and fellows. It should be at hand in every training program's electrodiagnostic laboratory."

--Francis O. Walker, MD, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology

Essentials of Electrodiagnostic Medicine is an intermediate level text for residents, fellows, and practitioners. This practical book is readable in the course of a standard resident rotation and ideal for board exam review, while also comprehensive enough to be a useful reference. The second edition has been thoroughly updated throughout while retaining the key features of the first edition.

Essentials of Electrodiagnostic Medicine is divided into two parts. The first part covers the theoretical and technical fundamentals including basic electronics, instrumentation, and the anatomical, physiological, and pathological underpinnings of electrodiagnostic medicine. The second half of the book is devoted to the clinical applications and electroclinical correlations of the most common diseases and conditions. Each chapter begins with an outline and concludes with a bulleted list of key points and annotated bibliography that succinctly summarizes the relevant literature.

Essentials of Electrodiagnostic Medicine features:

  • Practical, readable, treatment of the fundamentals of electrodiagnostic medicine
  • Designed for use during a standard EMG rotation
  • Covers clinical neuromuscular disease in addition to basic electrodiagnostic concepts
  • Each chapter contains detailed summaries, key points, and an annotated bibliography
