Working up the Weakness: Polyneuropathies
Diseases that cause neuromuscular weakness are uncommon and often result in multifocal neurologic abnormalities. Although this makes them daunting, many of these diseases can have a good prognosis if identified early. This session will focus how to recognize when a patient has neuromuscular disease, what differential diagnosis should be on your list, and how to prioritize differential diagnoses.
- * Recognize the presence of neuromuscular disease
- * Recognize the difference between neuropathies, junctionopathies and myopathies
- * Become comfortable with common diagnostic tests and supportive care for patients with neuromuscular disease
