Cerebral oxygenation responses to standing in elderly patients with predominantly diastolic dysfunction.

Abstract

Patients with left ventricular dysfunction may have different orthostatic responses of blood pressure (BP) and cerebral oxygenation than healthy elderly subjects. We investigated orthostatic changes in systemic haemodynamic variables and cerebral oxygenation in 21 elderly patients with heart failure New York Heart Association class I-III in stable condition… (More)
