Autonomic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Implications of Postural Diabetic Cardiovascular Abnormalities

ABSTRACT Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN) is a disorder of progressive autonomic dysfunction (AD) associated with diabetes and other chronic diseases. Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is one of the most incapacitating symptoms of CAN and AD. AD in OH can include sympathetic withdrawal (SW). To detect and diagnose SW, parasympathetic and sympathetic changes must be clearly differentiatedContinue reading “Autonomic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Implications of Postural Diabetic Cardiovascular Abnormalities”

CARDIAC AUTONOMIC TESTING AND TREATING HEART DISEASE. “A CLINICAL PERSPECTIVE” 2 OF 2

ABSTRACT Background Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a major health concern, affecting nearly half the middle-age population and responsible for nearly one-third of all deaths. Clinicians have several major responsibilities beyond diagnosing CHD, such as risk stratification of patients for major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and treating risks, as well as the patient. This secondContinue reading “CARDIAC AUTONOMIC TESTING AND TREATING HEART DISEASE. “A CLINICAL PERSPECTIVE” 2 OF 2”

CARDIAC AUTONOMIC TESTING AND DIAGNOSING HEART DISEASE. “A CLINICAL PERSPECTIVE” 1 OF 2

ABSTRACT Background Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a major health concern, affecting nearly half the middle-age population and responsible for nearly one-third of all deaths. Clinicians have responsibilities beyond diagnosing CHD, including risk stratification of patients for major adverse cardiac events (MACE), modifying the risks and treating the patient. In this first of a two-partContinue reading “CARDIAC AUTONOMIC TESTING AND DIAGNOSING HEART DISEASE. “A CLINICAL PERSPECTIVE” 1 OF 2”
