Rapid screening for inflammatory neuropathies by standardized clinical criteria
Dr. Ted Burns interviews Dr. Chafic Karam about his article Rapid screening for inflammatory neuropathies by standardized clinical criteria. In this podcast, he discusses the Class IV evidence that 3 neuropathy characteristics—onset, distribution, and associated systemic features—accurately identify patients with inflammatory neuropathies. Rapid screening for inflammatory neuropathies by ODS clinical criteria is highly sensitive and has a high negative predictive value for noninflammatory neuropathies. ODS uses simple clinical criteria to rapidly screen for patients with a potentially treatable form of neuropathy and accelerate their diagnostic evaluation. Neurol Clin Pract 10.1212.
