An algorithm for the safety of costal diaphragm EMG derived from ultrasound
Muscle & Nerve, 05/10/2012
Amirjani N et al. – The safety of the “trans–intercostal” method of diaphragm electromyography (EMG) depends on the anatomic level chosen to insert the needle, patient position and breathing pattern. Hence, the authors have developed a safety algorithm for electromyographers.
