ANS Bio-scan testing

Includes:
Autonomic nervous system (ANS) testing, including parasympathetic function and sympathetic adrenergic function .
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a physiological function whereby the time interval between heart beats varies. These variations in heart rate reflect the quality of cardiovascular autonomic function. Autonomic function or function of the autonomic/visceral nervous system regulates involuntary action (eg. respiration, digestion) of the intestines, heart, smooth muscle, and glands. This function is divided into two physiologically and anatomically distinct, mutually antagonistic subsystems: the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

How This Helps Our Patients:

  • Evaluation of current health situation – symptoms, medications and therapy reactions;
  • Assessment of possible adequacy of the recovery process e.g from a major illness or surgery
  • Initiation of Physician’s focus to treat the onset of chronic situations or severity of the diseases;
  • Improve evaluation of the prognosis and treatment outcomes;
  • Identification of abnormalities in cardiovascular, cerebrovascular system and overall health assessment;
  • Blood circulatory status – age of blood vessels based on arterial elasticity, peripheral circulatory status, organic/functional abnormality of the blood vessels;
  • Prediction and progression of arteriosclerosis in cases such as Obesity, Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia, Diabetes etc
  • Predicting burn-out syndrome, anxiety, depression, psychological conditions;
  • New nervous system data on Asthma, COPD, Palpitations, Pain management, Sleep apnea
What to expect during the ANS bio-scan
The scan takes less than 30 minutes and involves:
  • Ekg electrodes attached to skin of legs, trunk and forehead
  • Blood pressure and pulse oximetry measurements with various positional movements and timed breathing maneuvers
  • Skin Sudomotor function assessment like a galvanic skin response stress test using  Bioelectrical Conductances thru skin
  • Immediate reports qualitative, quantitative and graphic analysis and results of ANS balance, heart rate variability (HRV), cardiovascular, stress, fitness and overall health assessment for comparison with patient case history and necessary procedural actions;
