NIC: Autonomic Neuromodulation

3:30–5 pm Saturday, January 13

The autonomic nervous system plays an important role in the regulation of various visceral organs. This session will discuss how autonomic neuromodulation has a great potential for treating various conditions of visceral organs.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss monitoring of cardiac neural activity and potentials of neuromodulation for heart failure.
  • Recognize potentials of neuromodulation for gastrointestinal diseases, such as inflammation and dysmotility.
  • Explain bioelectronic methods for blocking the autonomic system.

Faculty subject to change.
