Increasing blood pressure with phenylephrine reduces OI symptoms

Research abstract Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), with orthostatic intolerance is characterized by neurocognitive deficits, impaired working memory, concentration, and information processing. In CFS, upright tilting (HUT) caused decreased cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFv) related to yperpnea/hypocapnia and impaired cerebral autoregulation; … Continue reading
