#Autism and Autonomic Testing: Q-Sweat testing

Gavin is getting set up for what’s called the Q-Sweat test. Basically,  they use electrodes placed on his arm,  leg,  ankle and foot.  They send a small electronical current to these four locations and stimulates sweat production. 

There are also little tubes attached to the same area that collect up any sweat produced and sends it to a special machine for analysis.

Gavin is doing well with this test as it can be uncomfortable.

Ironically,  while they were calibrating the electrical current in his ankle,  it triggered a crazy amount of sweat in that location.  This has actually caused a problem and delayed the test. 



Apparently,  this is unusual and we aren’t sure why this is happening,  at least to this degree.
