Ethics Vignette XI: The Technologist’s Role in Ensuring Patients Receive Proper EDX Testing
This ethical vignette discusses the technologist’s role when the examining physician misidentifies EMG waveforms and abnormalities. Technologists do not perform EMGs, but experienced technologists who assist when EMGs are done pick up basic knowledge about normal versus abnormal waveforms. This vignette will help technologists determine actions to be taken when they suspect inaccurate interpretation of EMG data. The reader also will learn how to recognize his/her responsibilities when EMG documentation is substandard and how to discuss this documentation with a physician.
