TM FLOW System - What Is TM Flow?
Autonomic nervous system function affects the entire body. When a primary or secondary disorder alters any aspect of ANS behavior, several symptoms may develop in various systems of the body. Such symptoms include urinary incontinence or a dramatic drop in blood pressure upon standing from a seating position. TM Flow is an innovative platform that provides your doctor with valuable information regarding your autonomic nervous system and the potential degradation of function resultant from a chronic health condition such as diabetes. Autonomic nervous system testing has historically involved several measurements. We obtain each measurement independently through specific modalities such as a sweat test. TM Flow combines technologies so multiple measurements may be obtained in one painless and straightforward process. TM Flow also assesses the broad functionality of the autonomic nervous system in a few short minutes, revealing critical clinical data that supports the earliest possible diagnosis and treatment of secondary concerns related to health conditions like erratic blood glucose.
There are several situations in which autonomic nervous system testing is appropriate. The TM Flow automated system expedites the process, so patients do not have to spend any more time than necessary in the office. Currently, ANS testing is deemed medically appropriate when a patient displays signs of autonomic dysfunction and routine laboratory testing and clinical data do not provide enough evidence for an accurate diagnosis.
ANS testing may be used to investigate a variety of conditions, including:
- Cardiac dysrhythmia
- Allergic conditions
- Sleep apnea
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
These are just a few examples of symptoms and conditions for which ANS may be advised. In addition to initial diagnosis, TM Flow may also provide useful clinical information regarding the efficacy of medical therapy.
