Duke Autonomic Nervous System Testing


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I am going for some testing on the 29th of this month for Autonomic Nervous System testing at Duke Childrens. I was wondering if anyone else has gone or taken their kids here and got this done at Duke Childrens. I see Dr.Kanter. I was told that I would have to get an IV in my artery and that was about it. I am a bit anxious and scared about getting this done. I hate not knowing what to expect. :unsure:

Hi Potsgirl,

I haven't been tested at Duke so I can't speak to that. But, if you are feeling apprehensive, you could give them a call and ask if a nurse or assistant can explain what to expect during the testing. I totally understand what your saying about the apprehension. I always imagine way worse than what the tests actually involve. The autonomic testing that I have had has not been bad...maybe a little uncomfortable...but not bad. Good luck to you! :)
