The TM Flow is a device that can help you and your doctor find the right treatment for autonomic disorders such as POTS, Dysautonomia and more. The TM Flow measures blood pressure, heart rate and breathing patterns while you are in a supine position on a table. This allows the doctors at the NC Autonomic Center to see how well your body’s systems are working together while resting. By performing this test regularly, we can measure how well these systems respond after various therapies such as medications or supplements over time.

What is a TM Flow Test?

The TM Flow is a new device that measures autonomic function. It can help patients find the right treatment for their underlying conditions, including neuropathy and diabetic neuropathy.

This device uses a simple, non-invasive test that is conducted in the comfort of your own home. Patients simply lie down on their back while the machine takes measurements of blood pressure and heart rate variability before moving onto quantitative sudomotor axon reflex testing (QSART). The patient’s fingers are then exposed to warm water for 10 minutes before being removed from the water. The difference between initial and final temperature readings is recorded as increased skin temperature during QSART indicates that there has been an increase in sweat output from sympathetic nerves associated with these conditions.

How is it Different from a Tilt Table Test?

While a tilt table test is used to diagnose neurally mediated hypotension, the TM Flow is a new device that measures autonomic function and can help patients with finding the right treatment for their underlying conditions.

The TM Flow uses two separate streams of water to measure changes in blood pressure during activation of the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous systems. The first stream of water contains a blue dye that stains the skin, making it easier for doctors to see physical changes in blood pressure and heart rate as these occur during an autonomic reflex test (ART). The second stream contains an inert dye that does not stain skin but rather provides an accurate measurement of arterial pressures. Additionally, this allows physicians who are performing this test on their patients to easily determine if there has been any damage done by other tests like an MRI scan before conducting them again later down the road!

The TM Flow is a new device that measures autonomic function and can help patients with finding the right treatment for their underlying conditions.

The term autonomic refers to the part of your nervous system that controls involuntary bodily functions like circulation, digestion, respiration and urination. The autonomic nervous system can be divided into two parts: sympathetic and parasympathetic. Sympathetic refers to the part of your nervous system that prepares you for action by speeding up your heart rate, increasing blood pressure and dilating blood vessels. Parasympathetic is associated with relaxation; it slows down breathing and heart rate, relaxes blood vessels and helps digestion occur smoothly.

Autonomic function testing (AFT) involves measuring different aspects of both systems in order to determine their balance or imbalance relative to each other at any given time. These tests may be used for various conditions including chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), sleep disorders such as insomnia or hypersomnia (sleeping too much), headaches/migraines/sinusitis/tension-type headaches etc., irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic pain issues including CRPS 1&2 also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome or RSD as well as many other conditions associated with Central Sensitization throughout the body which includes things such as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome MCS sometimes called Environmental Illness EI; Lyme Disease Disease LD or Borrelia burgdorferi infection).
