Autonomic Nervous System Disorders Video Interview
The co-chairs of the Scientific Panel on Autonomic Nervous System Disorders, Mario Habek and Max Hilz, explain the work and aims of the panel. Watch the full video interview below:
Autonomic nervous system (ANS) disorders are common and may cause severe disease burdon on patients. The ANS controls all inner organs and the skin. Malfunction of this important part of the nervous system might often cause transient loss of consciousness, heart rate and blood pressure instability, sweat gland dysfunction, gastrointestinal symptoms, sexual dysfunction, and many others. It is of utmost importance to diagnose autonomic disorders to be able to offer specific treatment recommendations.
The panel supports quality of service within European countries by providing management and treatment guidelines. We established guidelines on orthostatic intolerance and are currently developing guidelines on transient loss of consciousness and orthostatic intolerance.
