This chapter lists the main syndromes and patterns seen during autonomic testing, based on classification according to physiology and/or functional anatomy. Although the classification is arbitrary, it is useful in that it allows the diagnostician to see classify patterns in test results that assist in the correct interpretation of the results. Presented in a series of easy to access lists, the most common patterns are autonomic failure, autonomic overactivity, paroxysmal dysautonomia orthostatic hypotension syncope, hyperventilation, cerebral hypoperfusion, cerebral blood flow velocity, and cerebral autoregulation disorders.
