Also known as postural hypotension, Orthostatic Hypotension is a type of low blood pressure that happens when you stand up from sitting or lying down. This can make you feel dizzy and may even make you faint. Usually, the condition lasts for a few seconds but if this happens for a longer period and is more frequent, it may indicate a more serious condition. Apart from light-headedness, the other symptoms are blurry vision, weakness, confusion and nausea.
HOW IS ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION DIAGNOSED?
To diagnose the condition, your general physician may evaluate your medical history, look for the specific symptoms and conduct a thorough physical examination. Blood pressure monitoring, blood tests and electrocardiogram is also suggested. Stress tests, table tilt tests and echocardiogram may also be used to rule out health complications that may cause this condition.
HOW IS ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION TREATED?
For mild orthostatic hypotension, one of the simplest treatments is to sit or lie down immediately after feeling lightheaded upon standing. Your symptoms of orthostatic hypotension usually disappear.
