Abstract

Older adults following recovery from ischemic stroke have a higher incidence of orthostatic hypotension, syncope, and fall risk, which may be related to impaired autonomic responses limiting the ability to maintain cerebral blood flow. Thus, we investigated cerebrovascular and cardiovascular regulation in 23 adults ≥55 years of age, 10 diagnosed with ischemic stroke, and 13 age-matched healthy controls when sitting at rest and upon standing to compare differences of autonomic variables at ∼7 months (218 ± 41 days) poststroke.
