The authors, based on the results of examining the state of subjective and objective clinical indicators of the ANS activity in 49 patients with the consequences of mild closed craniocerebral trauma, before, during, and after the “magnetic storm” assessed the features of the ANS activity. The research results showed that a magnetic storm causes a sharp increase in the frequency of subjective and objective manifestations of impaired activity of the ANS, which led to the expansion and aggravation of the symptom complex on the day of the magnetic storm. The next day, the frequency of subjective and objective neurological disorders decreases and the general condition of patients improves. Indicators of the state of the autonomic nervous system also react to a magnetic storm. The essence of the reaction is to increase the frequency of excessive or insufficient autonomic reactivity and autonomic support of activity.
