Dysautonomia International's Patient Powered Research
In July of 2014, we published our first research study designed and implemented by dysautonomia patients: Physician Patient Interaction in Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. While Dysautonomia International will always support the fantastic research on autonomic disorders being carried out at prestigious universities, we believe that patients are a great untapped reservoir of knowledge about their medical condition. Patients who live with a medical condition for many years can have insight into their condition that formally trained researchers may not have. Additionally, there are plenty of dysautonomia patients who have medical degrees and research backgrounds.
Participate in Research
Dysautonomia International's number one goal is to raise funds to promote additional research on autonomic disorders. However, no matter how much money we raise, the researchers doing this research still need patients to participate in their clinical trials and other types of studies. Some studies require you to visit the researcher's office, while others can be done from home or at your local doctor's office. Visit our Participate in Research page to learn how you can get involved.
Peer Reviewed Journal Articles
If you are a patient, caregiver or physician who wants to have a better understanding of your or your patient's diagnosis, we have put together the most helpful free online journal articles on several different autonomic conditions. These articles include Consensus Statements, summary review articles, and some of the most notable technical papers on each disorder.
Neurocardiogenic Syncope (NCS)
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
Pure Autonomic Failure (PAF)
Multiple System Atrophy(MSA)
Dysautonomia International regularly scans the medical literature and posts updates on highlighted autonomic research. You can view our most recent Research Updates.
