Dysautonomia Center

Mission statement

The goal of INBU's dysautonomia center encompasses the diagnostic work up, therapeutic management and  research of patients with autonomic disorders following a highly interdisciplinary approach that includes (among others) interactions with cardiology, gastroenterology, neuro-urology, psychiatry and neuroradiology. Autonomic disorders include neurogenic orthostatic hypotension associated with MSA, Parkinson`s disease, pure autonomic failure and peripheral autonomic neuropathies. In addition, patients with postural tachycardia syndrome (PoTS) and vasovagal syncope (VVS) are frequently seen. Currently, 500 patients present to our autonomic unit annually.  The autonomic screening battery includes tilt table testing (TTT plus catechols and EEG as indicated) and quantitative sudomotor axon reflex testing (QSART) as well as ambulatory 24 hour blood pressure recordings.
