The autonomic nervous system controls subconscious functions including heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, salivation, perspiration and swallowing. People with autonomic disorders, including dysautonomia, may have trouble standing for long periods of time, excessive dizziness, lightheadedness, exercise intolerance, gastrointestinal symptoms and chronic pain. NorthShore’s advanced autonomics laboratory and clinical expertise are assets for patients suffering from these disorders. Tune in to northshore.org/r13 for a video tour of the lab.
