Excerpt

Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction is a common feature of neurodegenerative disorders associated with autonomic failure such as multiple system atrophy, Parkinson’s disease, pure autonomic failure, and dementia with Lewy bodies [1]. Orthostatic hypotension in Parkinson’s disease carries a worse prognosis with shorter survival, increased risk of falls, and a higher rate of institutionalization and dementia [2, 3]. For the patients, orthostatic hypotension is associated with greater levels of functional impairment [4]. Taking care of a patient with a chronic disease may result in a mixture of fulfillment and challenges, but the progressive nature of the disease often negatively impacts caregivers’ physical and mental health [5]. Risk factors for caregiver burden include female sex, low educational attainment, residence with the care recipient, higher number of hours spent caregiving, depression, social isolation, financial stress, and lack of choice in being a caregiver [6]. In Parkinson’s disease, caregiver burden is associated with the severity of the disease and the physical and mental health of both the patients and the caregivers [7]. However, little is known about the relationship between autonomic dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease and caregiver burden. …
