Collaborator:
National Center for Research Resources (NCRR)
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Satish R. Raj, Vanderbilt University Medical Center
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00581022
First received: December 22, 2007

  Purpose
We wish to study sleep architecture in patients with chronic orthostatic intolerance. We will test the null hypothesis that there is no difference in time during the various phases of sleep between patients and healthy control subjects.

Condition Intervention
Postural Tachycardia Syndrome
Chronic Orthostatic Intolerance
Procedure: Polysomnography

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Assessment of Objective Sleep Disturbances in Orthostatic Intolerance
