Cerebral autoregulation adjusts cerebrovascular resistance in the face of changing perfusion pressures to maintain relatively constant flow. Results from several studies suggest that cardiac output may also play a role. We tested the hypothesis that cerebral blood flow would autoregulate independent of changes in cardiac output. Transient systemic(More)
AIMS Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a common condition, which is defined as a reduction in systolic blood pressure of >or=20 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure of >or=10 mmHg within 3 min of orthostatic stress. Utilizing total peripheral resistance (TPR) and cardiac output (CO) measurements during tilt-table testing (Modelflow method), we classified OH into(More)
The majority of cerebral autoregulation research has focused on the middle cerebral artery. However, many symptoms of presyncope indicate posterior cerebral hypoperfusion. To address this issue, we measured cerebrovascular reactivity, cerebral blood flow velocity and dynamic cerebral autoregulation in the middle cerebral artery and vertebral arteries during(More)
Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a clinical condition, which frequently results in symptoms such as syncope, dizziness during standing, weakness, blurred vision and fatigue. It is defined as a sustained drop in blood pressure exceeding 20 mmHg systolic or 10 mmHg diastolic occurring within 3 min of assuming upright posture, and is a common causal factor for(More)
Gait abnormalities are a recognised risk factor for falling in the elderly and variability in gait has been shown to be a measurable predictor of falls. We carried out a footswitch evaluation of the temporal parameters of gait of elderly fallers with a primary diagnosis of Orthostatic Hypotension, elderly fallers without a diagnosis of Orthostatic(More)
We examined anterior-posterior and medio-lateral head and trunk movements during gait using accelerometers, and a footswitch evaluation of temporal gait parameters of elderly fallers with a primary diagnosis of Orthostatic Hypotension, elderly fallers without Orthostatic Hypotension, and a control group of healthy elderly non-fallers. We wanted to evaluate(More)
