The autonomic nervous system (ANS) poses a challenge to the practice of medicine. Symptoms of autonomic dysfunction seem intrinsically incompatible with life, for example syncope upon standing.
There is an increased need for research that specifically addresses the population subset of women with dysautonoima, who are in the age range of 25-33 years old. It could be that the scientific, peer-reviewed literature can be revamped with studies having an n of thousands, instead of tens.
At Good Samaritan Hospital, a cardiologist by the name of David S. Cannom has helped many patients with dysautonomia. Last Monday, he asked Dr. Margaret A. Ferrante to consider Co-Directing and Co-Founding a Center for the Autonomic Nervous System at Good Samaritan Hospital in downtown Los Angeles, California.
She has accepted.
