Autonomic Nervous System Test (ANS)
What Is ANS
ANS is a medical device that tests your patient’s Autonomic Nervous System.
The Autonomic Nervous system as you know is responsible for controlling many involuntary functions such as breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, digestive processes, bowel movement, urination and and controls many sensory nerves in the peripheral post ganglia of the extremities. ANS dysfunction or failure could affect any system of the body- from gastrointestinal to cardiovascular disorders. ANS Testing can be used in the clinicians office to provide testing for the better differential diagnosis of many of the following symptoms:
- Shortness of Breath
- Racing Heartbeat
- Excessive or not enough perspiration
- Erectile Dysfunction or Vaginal Dryness
- Exercise Intolerance
- Tingling in toes or fingers
- Heat Intolerance
- Weight loss without trying
- Trouble swallowing
- Nausea after eating
- Swollen abdomen
- Urination issues
About The Exam
The ANS exam is a simple test performed in Your Office or medical clinic. It is a mobile non-invasive twenty-five minute test that is not painful and has no side effects.
Sensors will be placed on the patient’s finger, arm, and feet to detect heart rate, blood pressure, and other important vital signs in real time. The test is performed while the patient is in a relaxed state. They will then be asked to stand during part of the exam, and also be asked to perform some basic breathing exercises including a deep breath and hold for 15 seconds as well as a Valsalva maneuver.
The results of the test will provide you the clinician with vital information about the early detection of possible disease states and or complications of medication that could possibly be reversed. The test uses standard of care technology in an new and exciting way with very accurate analysis of heart rate variability, changes in pulse and blood pressure as a result of postural changes and real life situations.
The Exam is based on many years of clinical research, is cleared for use by the FDA and is recommended by various Medical Associations around the world including the American Diabetes Association.
There are four different CPT codes for use in reimbursement and is an accepted technology by Medicare and most insurance providers.
