Electrodiagnostics: Electromyogram/Nerve Conduction Velocity (EMG/NCV) Diagnosis & Interpretation

*CE Credits are issued for Doctors of Chiropractic only.

This 10-hour course covers how to understand the advanced neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and neurodiagnostic testing. The electromyogram/nerve conduction velocity (EMG/NCV) course has been engineered to allow the doctor to understand the clinical necessity for electrodiagnostic testing, how testing is performed, how to interpret the results based upon the report rendered by a specialist in electrodiagnostics, how to document the results and how to integrate that diagnoses or conclusion into the doctor’s overall treatment plan.

Part 1: Anatomy and Physiology of Electrodiagnostics:.  This section is an in-depth review of basic neuro-anatomy and physiology dermatomes and myotomes to both the upper and lower extremities. It covers the neurophysiology of axons and dendrites along with the myelin and function of saltatory for conduction. This section goes into depth into explaining the sodium and potassium pump’s function in action potentials.

Part 2: Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Part 1: This section discusses nerve conduction velocity testing, the equipment required and the specifics of motor and sensory testing. This section covers the motor and sensory NCV procedures and interpretation including latency, amplitude (CMAP) physiology and interpretation including the understanding of the various nuances of the wave forms.

Part 3: Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Part 2: This section covers a continuation of compound motor action potentials (CMAP) and sensory nerve action potentials (SNAP) testing and interpretation including the analysis and diagnosis of the wave forms. It also covers compressive neuropathies of the median, ulnar and posterior tibial nerves; known as carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel and tarsal tunnel syndromes. This section offers interpretation algorithms to help understand the neurodiagnostic conclusions 

Part 4: Needle Electromyogram (EMG) Studies: This section covers what  EMG do inclusive of how the test is performed and the steps required in planning and electromyographic study. This covers the spontaneous activity of a motor unit action potential, positive sharp waves and fibrillations. It covers insertional activity (both normal and abnormal), recruitment activity in a broad polyphasic presentation and satellite potentials. This covers the diagnosing of patterns of motor unit abnormalities including neuropathic demyelinated neuropathies along with acute myopathic neuropathies. This section also covers the ruling out of false positive and false negative results.

Part 5: Electrodiagnostic (EMG/NCV) Overview and Clinical Grand Rounds: This module a complete overview of what EMG and NCV procedures, results, diagnoses and documentation. It covers the clinical incorporation of electrodiagnostic studies as part of a care plan where neuropathology is suspected. It also covers how to use electrodiagnostics in a collaborative environment between the chiropractor as the primary spine care provider and the surgeon, when clinically indicated. This section covers sample cases and health conclude and accurate treatment plans based upon electro-neurodiagnostic findings when clinically indicated.
