IOH (initial orthostatic hypotension) comprises symptoms of cerebral hypoperfusion caused by an abnormally large transient MAP (mean arterial pressure) decrease 5-15 s after arising from a supine, sitting or squatting position. Few treatment options are available. In the present study, we set out to test the hypothesis that LBMT (lower body muscle tensing)(More)
AIMS Initial treatment of vasovagal syncope (VVS) consists of assuring an adequate fluid and salt intake, regular exercise and application of physical counterpressure manoeuvres. We examined the effects of this non-pharmacological treatment in patients with frequent recurrences. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred patients with > or =3 episodes of VVS in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess: (1) the frequency of an abnormally large fall in blood pressure (BP) upon standing from supine in patients with initial orthostatic hypotension (IOH); (2) the underlying hemodynamic mechanisms of this fall in BP upon standing from supine and from squatting. METHODS In a retrospective study of 371 patients (≤30 years) visiting the(More)
OBJECTIVE During hypotension induced by tilt-table testing, low presyncopal blood pressure (BP) usually recovers within 1 min after tilt back. However, in some patients prolonged post faint hypotension (PPFH) is observed. We assessed the hemodynamics underlying PPFH in a retrospective study. METHODS Seven patients (2 females, aged 31-72 years)(More)
