Autonomic Disorders Clinic

The autonomic nervous system is the part of your nervous system that controls involuntary actions, such as the beating of your heart and the widening or narrowing of your blood vessels. The service sees patients with autonomic disease symptoms that include:

  • Blood pressure problems
  • Heart problems
  • Trouble with breathing and swallowing

The service also sees patients with orthostatic hypotension symptoms. Patients with orthostatic hypotension may feel faint or pass out upon standing.

Staff members in the Autonomic Nervous System clinic collaborate with experts in other areas to provide a multidisciplinary approach to patients with disturbed autonomic function. Areas include:

  • Dermatology
  • Cardiology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Neuroophthalmology
  • Urology
