Association between orthostatic hypotension, cognitive decline, dementia, stroke, and death

Takeaway

  • Dizziness upon standing or within 2 weeks prior to testing, rather than orthostatic hypotension (OH) measured 3 minutes after standing, was associated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features, cognitive decline, dementia, and stroke.

Why this matters

    Understanding the relationship between OH and neurological features, and identifying optimal assessments for OH, may improve treatment outcomes.
