  PGMDE Hospital Appointments - Clinical Neurophysiology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Clinical Neurophysiology is a diagnostic specialty which encompasses the use of electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), nerve conduction studies (NCS), and evoked potentials (EP) to assess function in the nervous system.
Competence in Clinical Neurophysiology is underpinned by understanding of a wide range of relevant clinical conditions, as well as basic science, technology, electronics and data processing.
Many medical and surgical specialities utilise Clinical Neurophysiology, and background knowledge/experience of neurology, paediatrics, neurosurgery, orthopaedics and ophthalmology is particularly desirable.

In February, 2006, the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (formerly the American EEG Society) will offer the seventh annual in-service examination assessing knowledge of clinical neurophysiology of the central nervous system.
The examination will cover basic neurophysiology relevant for the understanding of clinical neurophysiology tests, technical aspects of physiological recording and testing methodology, and interpretation of tests with regard to neurological and general medical disease.
Clinical Neurophysiology training program directors, in particular, will find this examination to be a useful formal method of trainee assessment.

In these circumstances, the EEG is usually grossly abnormal, with bursts of activity separated by periods of relative inactivity (so-called "burst-suppression").
A similar EEG picture is often seen in the rather more common clinical picture of a child who develops multiple types of seizures within the first few days (often the first few hours) of life.
The clinical prognosis for normal cerebral development is usually very poor.

 JCHMT - Clinical Neurophysiology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Clinical Neurophysiology offers an exciting and varied career within the neurosciences for those interested in combining considerable patient contact with technical and computing skills.
It is primarily a diagnostic speciality concerned with recording electrical activity from the nervous system to aid the diagnosis, classification and management of neurological disease, and increasingly to identify surgically remediable conditions such as nerve entrapments.
Once the studies, intended to assess the validity of the methods, are complete the methods will be introduced as a regular form of trainee assessment for use as appropriate, within specialist training as part of a 'menu' of assessment methods.
