Overview

Utilizing a homeostatic approach incorporating medical practice, teaching, and research, this interdisciplinary reference fully examines the function and dysfunction of the body's autonomic systems to treat and promote better understanding of a variety of neurocardiological disorders. Highlights the roles of catecholamines, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine in autonomic systems! Ideally suited for both clinical and research purposes, The Autonomic Nervous System in Health and Disease

  • introduces a homeostat theory integrating cybernetic views of stress with principles of operation for effector systems
  • documents historical breakthroughs defining neurocardiology as a discipline in medicine
  • provides conceptual perspectives such as the homeostat theory of stress, defining characteristics of stress and distress, and the sources and meanings of plasma levels of catechols
  • reviews the physiology of the autonomic nervous system, including the cranial and sacral divisions of parasympathetic system, the sympathetic nervous and the adrenomedullary hormonal systems, and the homeostatic roles of catecholamine functions
  • surveys the interactions and responses of stress effector systems such as the pituitary-adrenocortical, the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone, endogenous opioid, and vasopressin systems, as well as the parasympathetic, sympathetic, and adrenomedullary systems
  • presents a schema for evaluating patients with neurocardiological disorders
  • discusses future trends in medical research and integrative medicine, including redirection of molecular genetics and integrative physiology to focus on mechanisms of adult health and disease
  • and much more!
    Written by a single expert in the field to provide better cohesion on the subject, and supplemented with over 1900 literature references and over 100 figures and tables, The Autonomic Nervous System in Health and Disease is an invaluable and comprehensive resource for clinical neurologists and neurocardiologists, neuroscientists, physiatrists, and neurochemists; cardiologists and internists; physiologists, biochemists, endocrinologists, and pharmacologists; psychiatrists and psychologists; medical house officers, residents, and interns; and medical and graduate school students in these disciplines.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book comprehensively and definitively covers both clinical and research aspects of the autonomic nervous system.
Purpose: The purpose is to synthesize clinical and research advances in our understanding of the autonomic nervous system into a single integrated textbook.
Audience: This book will appeal to neurologists, endocrinologists, cardiologists, and psychiatrists who have an interest in the interactions between the autonomic nervous system, stress, and the cardiovascular system.
Features: This is a carefully written, exquisitely edited, and meticulously referenced comprehensive textbook on the autonomic nervous system. Topics include historical perspective, anatomy and physiology of the autonomic nervous system, stress and the autonomic nervous system, neurocardiology, and disorders of the autonomic nervous system. The book deftly covers and integrates research advances with clinical problems. This book was clearly a labor of love for the author, and it shows in the high quality of the writing and the beautiful workmanship in assembling the diagrams, images, and references.
Assessment: This is certainly one of the best, if not the best, books available on the autonomic nervous system. No physician wanting an authoritative treatise on the subject of the autonomic nervous system can go wrong with this definitive book. Of special interest is the author's meticulous analysis of the autonomic-cardiac interactions (neurocardiology) and his scholarly discussion of the relation between stress (psychological and physical) and autonomic nervous system activity.

Developing further several ideas expressed in his (no date or publisher noted), Goldstein (neurocardiology, National Institutes of Health) applies homeostatic concepts about the function and dysfunction of the body's autonomic systems, especially those that use the catecholamines, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine. He argues that thinking homeostatically helps explain neurocardiologic disorders, test mechanics, and experimental therapeutic hypotheses; helps teach integrative physiology; and helps manage patients with dysautonomias. His discussion sometimes leads to modifications that help modernize his specialty, for example his thinking about Cannon's and Selye's views on the meaning of stress leads him to propose a Homeostat Theory, which melds psychological systems with principles of operation of effector systems, including catecholaminergic systems.
