This fifth edition of Autonomic Failure covers the many recent advances made in our understanding of the autonomic nervous system. There are numerous new chapters and extensive revisions of all other contributions. This book makes diagnosis increasingly precise by fully evaluating theunderlying anatomical and functional deficits, thereby allowing more effective treatment. This new edition continues to provide a rational guide to aid in the recognition and management of autonomic disorders for practitioners from a variety of fields, including neurology, cardiology, geriatricmedicine, diabetology and internal medicine.
