Description

Introduction to Clinical Aspects of the Autonomic Nervous System: Sixth edition, Volume 2 is an all-encompassing reference to the autonomic nervous system's function, dysfunction, and pathology. This volume describes the role of the autonomic nervous system in circadian rhythms, sleep and wakefulness, aging, exercise, and its role in pain perception. Additional chapters focus on disorders causing autonomic dysfunction, including spinal cord injuries, autonomic neuropathies, trophic disorders, and progressive autonomic failure. Other chapters are dedicated to autonomic adaptations in space and hypoxia and autonomic testing in the laboratory. Readers will be well-equipped to care for patients with autonomic disorders and guide their research endeavors.

  • Provides an extensive reference on the autonomic nervous system and its crucial functions
  • Discusses all aspects of autonomic physiology and pathology, including autonomic failure, spinal cord injuries, autonomic neuropathies, trophic disorders, and other forms of autonomic dysfunction
  • Outlines the role of the autonomic nervous system in several physiological processes, including sleep, wakefulness, aging, and pain perception
  • Details autonomic function testing and the effects of space exploration and hypoxia on the autonomic nervous system. This volume includes a chapter on the autonomic nervous system during the COVID-19 pandemic
