Accordingto MayoClinic (2017), the autonomic nerve system has multipledisorders, which is also referred as dysautonomia. This kind ofdiseases causes total or partial breakdown of the ANS. According tothe author of this article, the autonomic nerve system is responsiblefor many activities and functions of the body. The ANS controls mostof the involuntary activities in the human body (Mayoclinic, 2017).However, abnormal functions of the ANS can happen, which will showsigns such as irregular heart rate, blood pressure, increase intemperature, and others. Impairment of the ANS can cause manyproblems such as gastrointestinal complications among others. Thereare many reasons why the ANS may fail (Mayoclinic, 2017). Forinstance, it can occur as a secondary condition, especially amongpatients with chronic illness such as cancer and diabetes. There isongoing research to investigate more about the autonomic systemdisorders. Dr. Phillip Low heads this research, and the findings willhelp to determine how diabetic patients can be assisted to gettreatment when autonomic system dysfunction occurs (Mayoclinic,2017).
Importanceof the article to a nurse
Asa future nurse, the article helps me to learn how the autonomic nervedisorders can occur. Therefore, this article prepares me how toprevent ANS disorders and complications in my career as a nurse. Ibelieve I will use the knowledge acquired in this article in thefuture to help manage ANS disorders in my line of work. If acommunity member is affected, I will apply the knowledge to help inthe management of ANS diseases. To be a competent nurse in thefuture, I can educate patients and community members about ANSdiseases and complications, which will create awareness. Forinstance, I will teach community members that patients with chronicillness are vulnerable to ANS impairments.
