Mayo Clinic Clinical Autonomic Quantitation Workshop 2019 is organized by Mayo Clinic, Mayo Clinic School of Continuous Professional Development (MCSCPD) and will be held from Apr 26 -27, 2019 at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, United States of America.
This course is designed for individuals interested in the performance of non-invasive clinical autonomic tests, who are primarily neurologists, autonomic laboratory personnel, autonomic clinicians, and clinical neurophysiologists.
10.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
This course will focus primarily on the three autonomic function tests that have CPT codes. The program will integrate three specific aims beginning with lectures on the underlying physiology, patient preparation, indications for autonomic testing and factors that affect the results of these autonomic tests, and HCFA requirements. The heart of the workshop will be a demonstration of specific autonomic function tests; quantitative sudomotor axon reflect test (QSART), tests of cardiovagal function (heart rate response to deep breathing and to the Valsalva maneuver), and tests of the adrenergic function and will incorporate hands-on demonstrations.
There is also content on the interpretation of common and uncommon examples of tests, and lectures on a number of dysautonomias (POTS, syncope, autoimmune neuropathy; and pain) on which new information is available, or disorders where the autonomic laboratory is responsible for evaluating.
At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Recognize the underlying basis for the evaluation of autonomic function.
• Utilize autonomic testing in patients with autonomic disorders.
• Develop a plan for autonomic testing of patients with autonomic disorders.
• Assess commercially available autonomic equipment.
• Select new autonomic function tests using underlying autonomic principles.
• Perform autonomic testing proficiently and efficiently.
• Recognize technical errors/pitfalls.
• Troubleshoot and identify patients requiring additional studies.
• Identify most common autonomic abnormalities on testing.
• Interpret various autonomic study patterns and translate them into a meaningful interpretation.
• Identify and manage major autonomic disorders.
