The Masterclass by IFCN presentations were created in response to a call from IFCN members societies for more high quality, complimentary, online educational content. The series will provide a new presentation every month from top clinical neurophysiologists around the world, and each will include time for discussion with the lecturer following the presentation.

Providing the best in contemporary clinical neurophysiology education delivered in the most optimal format is the primary educational goal of the IFCN. As such, Masterclass by IFCN will be available complimentary to all registrants.

Masterclass by IFCN: The Electrodiagnosis of Guillain–Barré Syndrome

Join us for the next Masterclass by IFCN presentation on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 8:00 am EDT (2:00 pm CET).

Professor Nortina Shahrizaila will present The Electrodiagnosis of Guillain–Barré Syndrome.

The electrodiagnosis of Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) can be classified into demyelinating and axonal subtypes. In recent years, it has been demonstrated that there may be flaws in the existing criteria especially when applied at the early stages of disease. In this talk, the evolution of the electrodiagnostic criteria of GBS is discussed along with their drawbacks in recognising the spectrum of axonal subtypes of GBS.
