Electromyography in disorders of neuromuscular transmission.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Electrophysiologic tests in neuromuscular transmission disorders are valuable aids in the clinical assessment of patients with suspected disease. The techniques of RNS and SFEMG are most reliable when the electromyographer is aware of their pitfalls and when they are interpreted in relation to the overall clinical setting. RNS is the most widely used technique to assess the integrity of neuromuscular transmission but may be normal in many patients. Among the techniques used to assess abnormality of neuromuscular transmission, SFEMG is the most sensitive.
