Dr. Santini, a neurologist, will give an overview of “orthostatic hypotension” and its treatment. OH refers to an extreme drop in blood pressure upon standing or upon sitting up from lying down. Obviously it can be a debilitating symptom.
Dr. Santini specializes in the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and the atypical parkinsonism disorders. While her talk will focus on the symptom of OH, she will answer audience questions on other PD-related topics.
