nunntrio Posted March 3, 2011 Report Share Posted March 3, 2011 I decided to start a new thread because the other was so long. For those of you that understand this stuff better then I do can you explain this? In the study in states that "Pots patients had a larger orhterstatic increase in heart rate then did controls (52 +- 3 (mean +=SEM) vs 27 +-6 bpm, p=.001)". I thought a POTS diagnosis was defined as 30 bpm increase, why are the control bpm increases so close to a POTS definition? I do not understand scientific methods but I am hoping some of you will. I am asking because I was a part of this study and my bpm increased are usually only around 35.Thanks.Here is the link again to the study.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21266211 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
