This presentation by physician Dr. Jeffrey Boris, M.D. Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Cardiology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is a technical presentation geared towards helping other physicians diagnose, treat, and support patients with autonomic dysfunction.

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia or POTS has been notoriously difficult to diagnose in the past. And patients may often times end up visiting multiple physicians sometimes over a period of years, before being correctly diagnosed. This presentation may help other health care practitioners understand the disorder, and provides solid interventions for treatment.
