In this six-part video panel discussion, Prof Andrew Sharp meets with an expert panel to moderate discussion on the issues surrounding Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS) which is an abnormality of the automatic nervous system (dysautonomia) that results in abnormal heart rate increases upon standing or sitting.

 

The concluding video sees Dr Gall (King's College, UK) discuss what the future looks like for PoTS and examines why there is a need for more data and treatment options going forwards.

 

Panellists Prof Lesley Kavi, (Birmingham City University, UK), Prof Melvin Lobo, (Bart's BP Centre of Excellence, UK) and Prof Andrew Sharp, (The University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK) then discuss.
