I think its incorrect, many people have orthostatic hypotension and have pots. They are not mutually exclusive.
Which type? NOH yes, but NOH usually happens later during tilt, not within first 3minutes. NOH also goes w antibodies. While other forms of OH, like IOH, are not neurogenic.
Every definitionof POTS i ever read says "increase of 30 in HR in absence of orthostatic hypotension". What am I missing?
interesting: i had very high all antibodies that are found in NOH not only POTS, i never fainted but in tilt i had slight drop in BP .. highest was 17/10, as I had at the same time hypertension, that was considered normal drop, (because criteria for OH in hypertension is 30/20, and for normal BP is 20/10), I was dehydrated then a bit, all other times my BP dropped a bit, 10-5,
but after IVIG my BP never drops again on tilt, i had 5 tilts in 1 year - think I'm guinea pig for them - it always goes up a big for 10/6 or so, and my antibodies panel changed a lot, with much more negatives.
