American Autonomic Society 2023 Annual Meeting (JS2311B)
Each year the American Autonomic Society (AAS) brings together a diverse group of physicians, advanced practitioners, nurses, researchers and other allied healthcare professionals who are interested in the autonomic nervous system. It offers a valuable opportunity to present new research ideas, share insights and network through didactic lecture, panel case discussions, and interactive Q&A. Evaluation and treatment of patients with autonomic dysfunction disorders is variable because clinicians are not adequately trained in currently existing approaches to the diagnosis and management of these disorders. In addition, because the field is evolving, there are many presentations of these disorders that are not covered by evidence-based approaches. The 2023 meeting will be held in-person.
This program is specifically designed for Primary Care providers, Neurologists, Nurses, Advanced Practitioners, and Researchers that desire to gain advanced knowledge in diagnosis and management of patients with autonomic dysfunction disorders.
- Discuss the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms related to the autonomic nervous system in metabolic disorders and review the effects of vagal nerve stimulation on inflammation and metabolism
- Diagnose and manage postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and discuss the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms related to the autonomic nervous system in POTS
- Discuss the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms related to the autonomic nervous system in multiple system atrophy and describe appropriate diagnostic and treatment strategies for MSA
- Diagnose and manage neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH) and discuss the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and diagnoses associated with autonomic failure
- Describe appropriate treatment for autonomic disorders based on current guidelines
- Recognize the prevalence of autonomic disorders in women to include the management of autonomic changes during pregnancy and identifying autonomic contributions of pelvic pain in women
