(POTS, also postural tachycardia syndrome) is a condition of
dysautonomia, to be more specific orthostatic intolerance, in which
a change from the supine position to an upright position causes an
abnormally large increase in heart rate, called tachycardia.
Several studies show a decrease in cerebral blood flow with
systolic and diastolic cerebral blood flow (CBF) velocity decreased
44% and 60%, respectively. People with POTS have problems
maintaining homeostasis when changing position, i.e. moving from
one chair to another or reaching above their heads. Many also
experience symptoms when stationary or even while lying down.
