Can tilt training help prevent vasovagal syncope?

Can tilt training help prevent vasovagal syncope?

Not really: Neurocardiogenic syncope in young people is pretty common and there are different triggers that lead to the faint in people, but the trigger is often the same for a particular person.

Can iv saline help with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome?

Can iv saline help with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome?

If dehydrated yes: But understand, if your fluid volume is normal (not dehydrated) it will not help. POTS occurs because the normal responses that keep blood flow into your brain when you change position (ie lying down to standing or sitting to standing) do not work properly (it is a complicated process) and you get light headed or even faint. So, take your meds, stay hydrated, change positions carefully. Dr R ...Read more

How can I prevent orthostatic hypotension?

How can I prevent orthostatic hypotension?

Slow Adjustments: Orthostatic hypotension can be prevented by gradually allowing your body to equilibrate in different phases of movement. For example, after laying in bed for prolonged periods of time, blood tends to pool away from the head. Sit up while still in bed, equilibrate for a few moments, and then proceed to stand. This gives your body's vasculature time to constrict and redirect blood appropriately. ...Read more

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Bp 94/50-120/80. Would fludocortisone bring my BP up? Male 22.

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.  Bp 94/50-120/80. Would fludocortisone bring my BP up?  Male 22.

It may: In pots, your body does not adjust your blood pressure adequately when you stand up (and your heart has to fight gravity to keep blood going to your head). Fludrocortisone helps keep your blood volume higher by making you retain more salt and water, so you are less likely to suffer symptoms from your pots. ...Read more

I have postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.  Bp 120/70 position changes it goes to 138/75. Prescribed midodrine should stop jumps?

Unclear: If by "jumps" you mean changes in bp, it may help. Midodrine is intended to maintain the BP and help prevent abrupt decreases in the BP with standing. Be certain you are drinking at least 60-80 oz of water every day. ...Read more

Raynauds phenomenon.  I also have postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Can i take midodrine still? Male 22

yes but: Midodrine shouldn't make the raynaud's any worse. But that's a big 'shouldn't' because raynaud's is a tough problem to treat. A better choice for the pots might be fludrocortisone, which would not interfere with the raynaud's (i would think). ...Read more
