In brief: POTs and Syncope

There is growing recognition of this condition.
Pots is a situation where there is an inappropriate heart rate increase to low blood pressure, but typically dont see more than just a sinus tachycardia. Sick sinus syndrome tends to have more abnormal findings on ecg. I am sure you have a cardiac specialist to whom these questions should be addressed.
