Electrodiagnosis in diseases of nerve and muscle: principles and practice
When Kimura's first edition was released, it was immediately hailed as a classic. Intended as a handy, comprehensive reference for clinicians conducting electrodiagnostic tests, the second edition includes a number of chapters entirely rewritten to reflect rapid medical and technological advancements. The text has been substantially revised and is now augmented by 1,200 new citations. Topics include relevant anatomy and physiology, basic instrumentation, basic principles of nerve conduction studies, a step-by-step guide to studying individual nerves, and common technical problems and errors associated with electrodiagnosis.
