I have posted this in the past on the Flownet but we do not perform cold immersion we only perform warm immersion.
Yes, the waveforms are abnormal pre warming. If the waveforms are abnormal post warming the patient is diagnosed with a fixed obstruction. If the waveforms increased post warming, they are diagnosed with a vasospastic condition.
Almost all of our confirmed Raynauds patients have abnormal waveforms pre warming.
