Excerpt

Orthostatic hypotension (OH) reflects insufficient hemodynamic adjustment to postural changes, which may exceed the threshold of cerebral autoregulation resulting in decreased cerebral perfusion during orthostatic stress. Cognitive testing during upright position in Parkinson disease (PD) patients with OH demonstrated transient impairment in cognition with more pronounced deficits in executive function, memory, and visuospatial domains [ 1]. Patients who experience repeated bouts of OH may be predisposed to chronic brain hypoxia leading to progressive cognitive decline and dementia, especially in the setting of synergistic neurodegenerative processes. Multiple studies have shown the association between OH and dementia as well as cognitive impairment progression to dementia, even when OH was asymptomatic [ 2, 3]. …
