Initial Orthostatic Hypotension: Don’t Blink or You Will Miss It

Original Air Date:10/6/2021

Duration:60 minutes

Despite frequent presentation in syncope clinics, Initial Orthostatic Hypotension (IOH) is a relatively understudied and under-recognized disorder. Patients with IOH are often referred for syncope or Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).

During this webinar, Satish Raj, MD MSCI and Nasia Sheikh, MSc from the University of Calgary will briefly review IOH, including diagnostic criteria, review the differential diagnosis of IOH, and common presentations. They will share some recent research findings on the hemodynamic mechanisms underlying IOH. And they will offer some insights into non-pharmacological approaches to the management of patients with IOH from recent studies.

Key learning objectives:

  • How initial orthostatic hypotension patients present
  • The hemodynamic mechanisms underlying initial orthostatic hypotension
  • Non-pharmacological management methods for initial orthostatic hypotension
