Stephen Juraschek, MD, PhD, on OH Assessment, Dizziness in Older Adults
With several guidelines recommending different approaches, how and when to assess orthostatic hypotension (OH) is controversial. Authors of the Study to Understand Fall Reduction and Vitamin D in You (STURDY) evaluated how OH timing is associated with dizziness in older patients. In this podcast, study coauthor Stephen P. Juraschek, MD, PhD, discusses these findings and how they compare with past studies' results and current guidelines.
