    And did it lead to any treatment or other changes that helped?

    A friend just had the test done with a specialist. She gave me this description: two independent clinical tests (or studies) designed to determine the ability of both branches of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) to respond to and relax from a challenge. The two branches that make up the ANS are the sympathetic and parasympathetic (SNS and PSNS, respectively). The challenges are:

    1) deep breathing to challenge the PSNS,
    2) valsalva to challenge the SNS, and
    3) standing from a seated position to challenge both systems.
