The Center for Autonomic Medicine in Pediatrics (CAMP) at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago is the world’s leading referral center for children with congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) and rapid-onset obesity with hypothalamic dysfunction, hypoventilation and autonomic dysregulation (ROHHAD). Our passion is to improve the lives of children around the world with these rare, debilitating diseases of the autonomic nervous system through improved diagnosis and treatment. We hope that you will join us in this mission by supporting an exciting project currently taking place in CAMP.
The purpose of this IRB-approved research study is to gain a better understanding of the various clinical manifestations of autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysfunction in the pediatric population by obtaining data from healthy controls. With a better understanding of ANS functionality, we will be able to better anticipate healthcare needs and to provide more accurate guidelines to healthcare providers world-wide in caring for patients with ANS disorders.
