Proximal muscles have greater sensitivity than distal muscles. The 2 Electromyography 27 trapezius is the easiest shoulder muscle to test. The spinal accessory nerve is stimulated at the neck where it is superficial so that it can be maximally stimulated with low-intensity pulses, minimizing discomfort and stimulation of other muscles. Recordings can be also made from biceps brachii or deltoid muscles by stimulating musculocutaneous nerve in the axilla or axillary nerve at the Erb point. However, such stimulations are often disturbed by movement artifacts and stimulation/activation of near muscles.

07 mm2). SFEMG recordings can be performed during electrical stimulation of the nerve (S-SFEMG) or during voluntary activation (V-SFEMG) of the tested muscle [7–10]. , MAP) varies. This variation is due to physiologic fluctuation in the time for EPP to trigger MAP, and it represents the neuromuscular jitter. When SFEMG is performed during voluntary activation, the needle electrode, inserted into the tested muscle, records from two or more MAPs that belong to the same motor unit (MU) and that hence depolarize synchronously.

Manganelli Muscular Dystrophies The most frequent muscular dystrophies are the dystrophinopathies, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD). The diagnostic procedure, after the clinical evaluation, can be addressed with genetic testing, particularly when there is a positive family history or in some cases on muscle biopsy. Therefore, the EMG examination may be helpful in sporadic cases when clinical and biochemical data are equivocal. In these cases, needle EMG can reveal increased insertional activity, some sparse fibrillation potentials, and short, small, polyphasic MUPs with early recruitment.
