BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although aging and hypertension may predispose hypertensive elderly subjects to cerebral hypoperfusion during orthostatic stress, their effects on the acute cerebral autoregulatory response to hypotension are not known. METHODS Continuous middle cerebral artery blood flow velocity (BFV) (transcranial Doppler ultrasound) and mean(More)

Some data suggest estrogen mediates its effect through changes in arterial pressure and its regulation. However, the data available in older women are equivocal(More)
This study aimed to determine whether alterations in cardiovascular dynamics before syncope are related to changes in spontaneous respiration. Fifty-two healthy subjects underwent continuous heart rate (HR), arterial blood pressure (BP), and respiratory measurements during 10-min periods of spontaneous and paced breathing (0.25 Hz) in the supine and 60(More)
