Autonomic Dysreflexia

Name: Autonomic Dysreflexia
Description: A syndrome associated with damage to the spinal cord above the mid thoracic level (see SPINAL CORD INJURIES) characterized by a marked increase in the sympathetic response to minor stimuli such as bladder or rectal distention. Manifestations include HYPERTENSION; TACHYCARDIA (or reflex bradycardia); FEVER; FLUSHING; and HYPERHIDROSIS. Extreme hypertension may be associated with a CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT (MeSH).
Synonym(s): Autonomic Hyperreflexia, Spinal Autonomic Dysreflexia
