A Simple Way to Assess Orthostatic Intolerance

Orthostatic intolerance (OI) is an umbrella term used to describe abnormal autonomic nervous system response to orthostatic challenge.  Orthostatic hypotension (OH), neurally mediated hypotension (NMH) [or neurogenic hypotension] and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (PoTS) are terms used to describe variants of this response.  The new evidence-based IOM clinical criteria for ME/CFS establish that orthostatic intolerance is a common and often overlooked feature of illness that is objectively measurable. OI may contribute to dizziness, fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, chest and abdominal discomfort, and pain manifestations. The Bateman Horne Center recommends that all ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia patients have a NASA 10-minute Lean Test to assess for orthostatic intolerance. In order to help facilitate the adoption of this test, BHC has put together some simple instructions for healthcare providers in order to educate them on the process and encourage them to utilize it with their patients.
Pelle Wall In this education meeting, Pelle Wall, BHC Research Coordinator, will review the procedure and share information about the research underway on this procedure.
