AIM: To study the prevalence rate of orthostatic hypotension( OH) in elderly patients and to investigate the correlation between OH and left ventricular structure and function. METHODS: This study was conducted in126 hospitalized patients aged ≥80 years in our department. The orthostatic blood pressure was measured in the supine position after resting for over 5 min and at 0 and 2 min after standing. The patients were divided into non-OH group( the patients without OH,n = 81) and OH group( the… CONTINUE READING
