Neuro Muscular Disorders

WebPage_NeuroMuscularDisordersNeuromuscular diseases are a group of conditions that affect muscle function as a result of pathology in the muscles themselves, the peripheral motor nerves, or the neuromuscular junction.  These disorders can result in significant morbidity and mortality when the muscles controlling airway patency and respiration become involved.  This module will discuss several illnesses affecting the neuromuscular junction and review the various causes of myopathy.
