Join researchers from the University of Calgary for a deep dive into the hemodynamic effects of compression in individuals affected by Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).

Despite its relatively common presentation in the population, Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, or POTS, is a relatively misunderstood autonomic disease.  Researchers and clinicians struggle to distinguish, diagnose and treat those affected by the condition.

During this webinar, sponsored by Finapres Medical Systems, Satish Raj, PhD and Kate Bourne, BSc from the University of Calgary will briefly overview POTS, including diagnostic criteria, common symptoms and highlights from a large patient community survey. Following, they will then outline some of the non-pharmacological approaches to the management of the patient with POTS. Throughout this webinar there will be particular emphasis on recent data on the hemodynamic and symptomatic benefits of compression garments in the patients with POTS.

Key Topics Include:

  • The diagnostic criteria for POTS
  • Outline non-pharmacological management of POTS
  • Explain the hemodynamic effects of compression garments in POTS

Who Should Attend?

This webinar will be of particular interest to cardiologists, neurologists, physicians, researchers, PhD students, post-docs and physiologists.
