Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome – Overview and Focus on Non-Pharmacological Approaches

Live Date:February 11, 2021

Duration:60 minutes

Despite its relatively common presentation in the population, Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, or POTS, is a relatively misunderstood autonomic disease.  Researchers and clinicians struggle to distinguish, diagnose and treat those affected by the condition.

During this webinar Satish Raj, MD MSCI and Kate Bourne, BSc from the University of Calgary will briefly overview POTS, including diagnostic criteria, common symptoms and highlights from a large patient community survey. Following, they will then outline some of the non-pharmacological approaches to the management of the patient with POTS. Throughout this webinar there will be particular emphasis on recent data on the hemodynamic and symptomatic benefits of compression garments in the patients with POTS.

Key learning objectives:

  • The diagnostic criteria for POTS
  • Outline non-pharmacological management of POTS
  • Explain the hemodynamic effects of compression garments in POTS
