Objective(s)
As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to:  UNDERSTAND the physical exam findings that accompany upper motor neuron weakness; RECOGNIZE typical patterns
of upper motor neuron weakness and know what imaging should be obtained; DESCRIBE weakness patterns commonly seen in subjects presenting with muscle, nerve and motor neuron diseases; and IDENTIFY weakness patterns commonly seen in subjects presenting with neuromuscular
disorders.

You’ll also learn about the following:

  • Upper motor neuron verus lower motor neuron
  • Initial steps in the approach to the weak patient
  • When to admit the patient to the hospital for urgent evaluation
  • Pronator drift testing
  • Fasciculations
  • Management of the patient with increased muscle tone
  • Diagnosis and treatment of Guillian Barré syndrome
Description

Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Approach to Muscle Weakness in Primary Care.

The learner should be able to distinguish between ‘upper motor neuron’ and ‘lower motor neuron’
weakness and subsequently be able to choose an appropriate test for further evaluation of the patient’s weakness. Approach to patients with weakness secondary to lower motor neuron lesions using a pattern recognition approach.
