Systolic (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and heart rate (HR) are given as differences to baseline after 60 sec of active standing (AS) and of 70-degree upright position during passive tilt (PT), during phases Ile and IV of the Valsalva maneuver (VM), and the heart rate variability during deep breathing (DB).
* Patient was not able to perform the maneuver adequately.
CA = cardiac arrhythmias; IPD = idiopathic PD; nm = blood pressure not measurable because of severe fall; MSA = multiple system atrophy.
