Video Release: What Is Orthostatic Intolerance in ME/CFS? Part 1
August 10, 2020
This is the second in a series of short educational videos geared toward medical professionals.
The National Academy of Medicine has reported there is sufficient evidence to suggest a high prevalence of orthostatic intolerance (OI) exists in those with ME/CFS.
OI is measurable, and the ability to identify and manage OI can greatly improve patient outcomes and daily functioning. Part 1 in this video series will address ways to assess and measure orthostatic intolerance, while Part 2 addresses interventions and management.
*Although this video focuses on the diagnostic criteria of OI in those with ME/CFS, the content within this video applies to all who may experience OI/POTS/neurally mediated hypotension.
These videos have been made possible by the Utah Medical Association and other generous donors.
