Over the last two decades monophasic action potential (MAP) recording has matured into a technique that provides a link between basic and clinical electrophysiology. International experts present exciting data on MAP recording techniques, the mechanism and interpretation of MAPs, and novel aspects of repolarization-related arrhythmias.

This new 2-volume reference offers a practical approach to diseases of the muscle, neruo-muscular junction, and spinal cord. Volume I emphasizes the pathophysiology of neuromuscular disease and its assessment using electrophysiologic and radiologic tools. Volume II focuses on the application of electrophysiologic testing to the diagnosis and management of specific neuromuscular disorders. Edited by three respected experts, this essential resource also explores HIV, clinical trials, and neuromuscular disorders in critical care and the operating room. Integrates all the guidance needed to diagnose and manage the full range of neuromuscular diseases. Enhances the reader's ability to take neuromuscular histories, perform physical examinations, order and interpret laboratory tests, make effective management decisions and offer patients an accurate prognosis. Discusses new advances in electrophysiologic tests as well as genetic testing and the use of MRI to localize and diagnose neuromuscular conditions. Examines new management techniques such as the use of immunosuppressive drugs to treat Guillain-Barré syndrome, immune mediated peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia gravis and more. Features coverage of important topics such as HIV, clinical trials and neuromuscular disorders in critical care and the operating room. Details both adult and paediatric neuromuscular disorders. Reviews the basic science and genetics practicing physicians need to care effectively for their patients.
