Evaluation and Management of Autonomic Disorders I: Autonomic Testing, Failure, and Peripheral Neuropathies
Saturday April 21, 2018 9:30 am to 11:30 am
Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Amanda Peltier MD, MS
Faculty will provide an overview of assessing autonomic function, including common and less common tests for diagnosis of autonomic disorders, and discuss and provide a differential diagnosis of central and peripheral causes of autonomic failure.
This program complements C21: Evaluation and Management of Autonomic Disorders II: Diagnostic Approach and Treatments for Dysautonomia, but covers independent topics.
Participants should be able to improve their ability to formulate a differential diagnosis of autonomic failure, appropriate tests to order to identify autonomic failure and help localize whether the disorder is central or peripheral, and be able to identify common etiologies of autonomic failure.
