Grading

Grades of Autonomic Dysnfunction

The severity of symptoms of autonomic dysfunction fall along a continuum from normal function to debilitating and which interfere with activities of daily living. Somewhere along that continuum is a point (perhaps Grade III on the table below) at which patients are identified as having POTS.

These patients usually require meticulous care and often a medication that has been particularly tailored to their needs and responsiveness.
