About this book


This book is a guide to the everyday clinical management of disorders of the autonomic nervous system, from identification of the key symptoms of autonomic involvement and comprehensive history taking to choice of treatment. The book will assist the reader in determining the anatomic distribution of the disease, as well as underlying autonomic syndromes, and in transforming the clinical picture into a coherent explanation of the patient’s autonomic problem. In addition, guidelines are provided on selection of the most appropriate autonomic and laboratory tests and formulation of appropriate non-pharmacological and pharmacological management strategies. With cases drawn from clinical experience and a list of available online resources, Bedside Approach to Autonomic Disorders will aid the reader in acquiring the skills that are mandatory in order to put patients on the right clinical track. It will be a valuable guide for trainees and young doctors interested in autonomic disorders from the fields of neurology, internal medicine, cardiology, diabetology, and urology.
