Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers. Heart Failure Resting MSNA is elevated in congestive heart failure. Burst incidence, however, does not correlate with the severity of heart failure. Several mechanisms have been proposed for increased MSNA – cardiopulmonary reflex regulation, obstructive sleep apnea, and increased accumulation of metabolic byproducts. Resting MSNA decreases after cardiac transplantation as early as 1 month posttransplant. Sleep Apnea Resting MSNA is markedly increased in sleep apnea patients even in a state of complete wakefulness.

SSNA consists of vasoconstrictor impulses to the skin blood vessels, sudomotor impulses to sweat glands, and impulses to pilo erector muscles. SSNA in glabrous skin is regulated by central command that causes sweating due to mental stimuli. SSNA in hairy skin is regulated both by central command (mental sweating) and ambient temperature that causes thermal sweating.

Brain imaging can help exclude cerebrovascular diseases. Special Tests 123 Iodine-Metaiodobenzylguanidine Scintigraphy Scintigraphy with 123iodine-metaiodobenzylguanidine (I-MIBG) shows significantly lower cardiac uptake of 123I-MIBG in PAF than in patients with MSA and controls. 123I-MIBG appears to be a useful tool for differentiation between PD and MSA early after the onset of autonomic dysfunction. Patients with PD have significantly lower cardiac uptake of 123I-MIBG than patients with MSA and controls.
