Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH) is a condition that is part of a larger category called orthostatic hypotension (OH), which is also known as postural hypotension. nOH is caused by dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system and causes people to feel faint when they stand or sit up. An estimated 30 to 50% of people with Parkinson’s experience nOH, and the prevalence increases with both age and number of years of living with Parkinson’s.
During this webinar, Dr. Salima Brillman will discuss:
- The symptoms of nOH
- How nOH is diagnosed
- How to manage nOH with lifestyle choices
- How to manage nOH with medication
- Behaviors that can aggravate nOH
- How to reduce the burden of nOH for yourself and your care partners
- And more!
