Autonomic Functional Testing – Morningside Medical

Morningside Medical’s Autonomic Function equipment streamlines what is often a series of separate diagnostic tests into one fully-integrated, non-invasive, comprehensive assessment.  Using integrated triple oximetry and blood pressure, as well as a 3-lead ECG, a dynamic evaluation of the Autonomic Nervous System can be performed in less than 10 minutes, or as long as 20 minutes with full TILT protocol, all with verbal cues.

The Standard software protocol has been upgraded exclusively for all Carrick Scholars to be able to assess beat-to-beat blood pressure, heart rate variability and continuous ECG assessment through a series of resting, deep breathing, valsalva and tilt / standing phases, as well as adding both a post-test resting phase, and a grip test.

Blending a user-friendly testing application with dynamic results and reporting makes it possible to evaluate significant clinical indicators quicker and easier.  The software provides a multitude of customizable reporting options while also giving practitioners access to all forms of raw data.
Key Data Markers:
    • Beat-to-Beat Blood Pressure Assessment
    • HRV assessment during resting, deep breathing, valsalva, tilt
    • R-R Intervals
    • 30:15 Ratio
    • E:I Ratio
    • Dynamic Autonomic Tonus charting
    • Vascular compliance analysis
    • Grip Assessment Functionality
    • Post-Test Resting Assessment
  Additional Modalities that can be added to the Autonomic Function Equipment:
  • Sudomotor – QSART testing for peripheral nerve and sweat gland function assessment
  • Athlete training assessment software with an additional respiration sensor
