April 26, 2019 to April 27, 2019

****This course has been cancelled due to low registrations*****

Course Directors: Elizabeth Coon, M.D., Jeremy Cutsforth-Gregory, M.D.

This course will focus primarily on the three autonomic function tests that have CPT codes.  The program will integrate three specific aims beginning with lectures on the underlying physiology, patient preparation, indications for autonomic testing and factors that affect the results of these autonomic tests, and HCFA requirements.  The heart of the workshop will be a demonstration of specific autonomic function tests; quantitative sudomotor axon reflect test (QSART), tests of cardiovagal function (heart rate response to deep breathing and to the Valsalva maneuver), and tests of the adrenergic function and will incorporate hands-on demonstrations.

There is also content on the interpretation of common and uncommon examples of tests, and lectures on a number of dysautonomias (POTS, syncope, autoimmune neuropathy; and pain) on which new information is available, or disorders where the autonomic laboratory is responsible for evaluating.
