34: Orthostatic Syncope

This episode covers the two types of orthostatic syncope:

Neurally mediated orthostatic syncope (from conditions with autonomic dysfunction)


“non-neurally mediated” orthostatic syncope which is from medications or hypovolemia.

We discuss the diagnostic value and dangers of orthostatic vital signs and how to determine what type of orthostatic syncope your patient has had.

This is part 3 of a 4 part series on syncope so make sure you check out episode #32 and #33.
