Reading about the diagnosis of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome I got a little bit confused about the exact definition.
Key is the increased heart rate of more 30 bpm within 10 min or alternatively more than 120 bpm in total.
I am wondering "for how long" does the heart rate has to stay at the elevated level? Does every healthy person has an increased heart rate after standing up? Has the increase in heart rate to be somehow "sustained" to suggests PoTS? If so, what is sustained?
