Postural Tachycardia Syndrome Research

Our group often has research studies for POTS. People who meet the criteria for POTS and have had symptoms for at least the past 6 months may be eligible for our research studies. 

The criteria for a diagnosis of POTS include: 

  • Increase in heart rate of at least 30 beats/minute within 10 minutes of standing or being tilted upright.
  • No hypotension (drop in blood pressure) upon standing.

Interested participants may contact Emily Smith, RN BSN MPH (phone 615.875.1516) for information about ongoing studies.
