Unrecognized and untreated Borrelia infection can progress from localized inflammation (erythema migrans) to early or late generalized stage within weeks to months. Meningoradiculitis, arthritis, multiple erythemas, myositis, and myocarditis of the early generalized stage have a good prognosis after antibiotic treatment, but late manifestations can progress to chronic disease. Phrenic nerve palsy, autonomic nervous system dysfunction and carditis with acute heart failure are among rare manifestations as well as late generalised stage with myelitis. We present a case of a patient with meningoradiculitis, autonomic nervous dysfunction, respiratory failure due to phrenic nerve palsy and acute heart failure with systolic myocardial dysfunction. The diagnosis of Borrelia infection was confirmed by positive serological testing, appropriate response to antibiotic therapy and exclusion of other diseases. Our case suggests that in unexplained respiratory failure and acute systolic myocardial dysfunction, ...

Background: There are no studies of autonomic function comparing Alzheimers disease (AD), vascular dementia (VAD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Parkinsons disease dementia (PDD).. Aims: To assess cardiovascular autonomic function in 39 patients with AD, 30 with VAD, 30 with DLB, 40 with PDD and 38 elderly controls by Ewings battery of autonomic function tests and power spectral analysis of heart rate variability. To determine the prevalence of orthostatic hypotension and autonomic neuropathies by Ewings classification.. Results: There were significant differences in severity of cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction between the four types of dementia. PDD and DLB had considerable dysfunction. VAD showed limited evidence of autonomic dysfunction and in AD, apart from orthostatic hypotension, autonomic functions were relatively unimpaired. PDD showed consistent impairment of both parasympathetic and sympathetic function tests in comparison with controls (all p,0.001) and AD (all p,0.03). ...

This study was performed to investigate the impact of autonomic dysfunction of the cardiovascular system and its association with the incidence of mortality in diabetic female rats that underwent ovarian hormone deprivation. In addition, we aimed to study the effects of exercise training, as a nonpharmacologic approach to treating diabetes and ovariectomy induced dysfunctions. Two important insights can be gained from the present study. First, the diabetic OVX rats presented increased autonomic dysfunction and mortality compared with normoglycemic rats. Second, TDO rats showed autonomic function improvement and a lower mortality than SDO rats.. Previous reports12,20 demonstrated that ovarian hormone deprivation in rats increases AP to levels higher than that observed in intact female and male rats.12,20-23 The AP values obtained in the SO rats in the present study were also increased in relation to the values documented in previous studies in intact female or male rats. Similarly, the incidence ...

Diabetes is a complex condition that often causes a variety of complications, one of them being autonomic neuropathy (or autonomic dysfunction). From the digestive system to heart and blood vessels, autonomic neuropathy affects numerous body systems all at once. Its important your practice is prepared to diagnose and treat the wide range of symptoms that patients with this condition can experience.. Sudomotor dysfunction refers to the symptom of diabetic autonomic neuropathy that affects a persons sweat glands. Patients experiencing sudomotor dysfunction might sweat excessively, especially after eating even non-spicy foods and at night. Sudomotor dysfunction also causes patients to not sweat at all, even when its extremely hot outside. Sweat, of course, is needed to keep the body cool.. To diagnose sudomotor dysfuntion, along with other common features of diabetic autonomic neuropathy, your practice should invest in equipment that provides a precise evaluation of sweat gland function. The ...
Hi jhmom, welcome to the heart forum. I have bradycardia (low heart rate) for this I have a pacemaker, Sick Sinus Syndrom and a septial defect. I also have extremely low blood pressure due to an autonomic disorder that presented in august 05. My blood pressures some days get down to 70s/50s (and even lower) and I do pass out when I stand and even sitting up I have hullicunations and such. My bps have always been on the low side but not ever this low before. I have also had MS for over 5 years. When my heart and bp problems started in 8/05 before my diagnosis of the autonomic disorder my doctors had to take me off of each and every medication that I was on at the time as meds can be a huge factor to these type of problems. Also, to assess if there were any drug interactions going on too as over time these can develop even with medications that a person has taken for a while. I would assume that since you have lupus that you are on some medications? What I would say is if you dont have a family ...

In patients with type 2-diabetes and ischemic heart disease autonomic function might be seriously affected.. In the present study, markers of cardiac autonomic dysfunction, repolarization and respiration abnormalities will be assessed from Holter recordings and 30-minute recordings of high-resolution three dimensional ECG, non-invasive arterial blood pressure and respiratory activity.. The correlation between markers of cardiac autonomic dysfunction and markers of severity of type-2 diabetes will be assessed. Autonomic dysfunction is assumed present when both heart rate turbulence and deceleration capacity are abnormal (severe autonomic failure). Assessment of severity of diabetes includes levels of HbA1c and urine albumine, duration and treatment of diabetes, and diabetes related complications (nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy). ...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease of increasing incidence and prevalence. Arterial baroreceptors are stretch-sensitive receptors, which in a reflex manner are involved in the homeostatic control of arterial blood pressure. Diabetic subjects have depressed baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), although the exact pathomechanisms are unclear. In this review, we discuss the features, clinicaland prognostic implications of reduced BRS for diabetic patients and the potential involvement of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy and atherosclerosis. Finally, we demonstrate evidence on interventions (e.g. pioglitazone, alpha-lipoic acid, leptin, fluvastatin, physicaltraining etc.) which could improve BRS and ameliorate cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction in diabetic patients ...

Research Design and Methods A battery of cardiovascular reflex tests was performed in 130 newly diagnosed IDDM patients aged 12-40 yr at mean blood glucose levels of 7.2 mM after insulin had been administered for 3-39 days. Age-dependent lower limits of normal of these tests were defined at the 2.3 percentile in 120 nondiabetic subjects. Tests of heart-rate variation (HRV) included the coefficient of variation (C.V.) and the low-frequency (LF), midfrequency (MF), and high-frequency (HF) bands of spectral analysis at rest, HRV during deep breathing (C.V., expiratory-inspiratory ratio, and mean circular resultant), Valsalva ratio, and maximum/minimum 30:15 ratio. In addition, spectral analysis on standing, the change in systolic blood pressure to standing, and diastolic blood pressure response to sustained handgrip were determined in 50 patients.. ...

Twenty six patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus underwent a gastric emptying test, a gall bladder contraction test, an orocaecal transit study, and a colon transit test. Eleven patients had signs of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, 15 patients were without signs of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy. Mean gastric clearance of radioopaque markers ingested with a meal averaged 29.5 (2.3) markers per six hours in subjects without cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy compared with 17.8 (2.3) markers per six hours in patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (p , 0.02). Gall bladder emptying in response to graded CCK8 stimulation was impaired in five of 11 patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, whereas it was normal in the patients without cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (p , 0.01). Oral caecal transit times were not significantly different in the two patient groups, whereas colonic transit was slower in the patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy ...
This study investigated the efficacy of droxidopa in patients with symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension associated with primary autonomic failure
Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension is a disorder of noradrenergic neurotransmission. Its most familiar presentation is lightheadedness or even syncope on standing. We know that the basic mechanism is impaired norepinephrine release from postganglionic sympathetic nerve terminals, resulting in a decrease in blood pressure (BP) and reduced blood flow to vital organs, especially the brain, when one stands. Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is defined as a fall in systolic BP of at least 20 mm Hg or in diastolic BP of at least 10 mm Hg within 3 minutes of standing. Symptoms may include lightheadedness, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, vision changes, poor concentration, head and neck pain, and difficulty standing.[1] It could be due to an underlying neurologic condition or other factors. To get the conversation going, Billy, what are the non-neurologic causes of OH?Continue reading: http://www.medscape.org/viewarticle/835650. ...

Pfeifer, M.; Peterson, H.; Snider, H.; Cyrus, J.; Broadstone, V.; Fell, R.; Rothschild, A.; Samols, E., 1985: Relationship of diabetic autonomic neuropathy to cardiac performance
Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a common feature of sympathetic autonomic dysfunction and can lead to lightheadedness, weakness, dizziness, and syncope. It is defined as decrease in systolic blood pressure of at least 20 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure of at least 10 mmHg within 3 minutes of standing. OH is associated with an increased incidence of cerebrovascular disease, myocardial infarction, and mortality. Non-pharmacological treatments may alleviate OH-related symptoms, however, are not sufficient when used alone. Pharmacological treatment is essential in managing OH. In this review, we aimed to discuss non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment options for OH. ...

The present data suggest that orthostatic hypotension is often present in Parkinsons disease. Symptomatic orthostatic hypotension is related to duration of disease, daily levodopa and bromocriptine dose, and the importance of systolic blood pressure fall during the standing procedure. Moreover, it was possible to identify postural events directly related to the fall in systolic blood pressure and to define a clinical score reflecting the severity of orthostatic hypotension.. Sir James Parkinson in his first description of shaking palsy reported the association of motor features with symptoms suggesting the involvement of the autonomic nervous system.19 More recently several investigators have reported the existence of autonomic disorders in the course of Parkinsons disease (for reviews see Korczyn1 and Streifler et al 2). Lewy bodies have been found in brain regions involved in activity of the autonomic nervous system, such as the locus coeruleus, dorsal vagal nucleus, and intermediolateral ...

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia (POTS) and other cardiovascular autonomic nervous system dysfunction. I mentioned these in Part One. Poor automatic regulation of the heart rate and blood pressure is quite common. The actual number of affected patients is unclear, since no one has ever done a study to look at the prevalence of this in Sjogrens. A large survey in the UK showed all dysautonomias lumped together affect 55% of primary Sjogrens patients. This result was based on self-reported symptoms. Many were cardiovascular autonomic symptoms, but better studies need to be done. If you get dizzy or light headed when standing quickly, get tested. It takes a knowledgeable doctor (Ask: Do you know how to diagnose POTS?) and more time than allowed in a typical medical appointment to diagnose this. ...

N2 - The suppression of heart rate variation reflects cardiac autonomic nervous dysfunction and is known to be associated with a poor prognosis or sudden death in diabetic patients. We investigated consecutive changes in the heart rate variation in 51 alcoholics using the coefficient of variation of R‐R interval (CVRR). To correct for age effects, a ratio of CVRR to the standard predicted value (CVP) was calculated. On the whole, CVRR/CVP was suppressed on admission and on the 7th day of abstinence and increased on the 30th day. However, alcoholics could be divided into two groups by their CVRR/CVP on the 30th day: one group with transient autonomic ...
