In contrast to the frequency of disorders of the autonomic nervous system, detailed knowledge on the diagnosis and treatment of ANS diseases is relatively scant among the majority of clinical specialists. Taking into account the prevalence of these disorders, good autonomic skills are mandatory to put patients on the right clinical track. This book serves as a guide for the everyday clinical management of ANS disorders from identifying key symptoms for autonomic involvement to comprehensive history taking. It helps determining the anatomic distribution of the disease as well as underlying autonomic syndromes and guides the reader towards transforming the clinical picture into a coherent explanation of the patient's autonomic problem. In addition, the book provides guidelines for choosing appropriate autonomic and laboratory tests and developing appropriate non-pharmacological and pharmacological management strategies. With cases from clinical experience and a list of available online resources, this book will be a useful guide for trainees and young doctors interested in autonomic disorders from the fields of neurology, internal medicine, cardiology, diabetes and urology.
