Orthostatic responses in patients with DDD pacemakers: signs of autonomic dysfunction.

PMID:  1279575     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSIONS: (1) No reduction in stroke volume during upright posture occurs in DDD patients with sick sinus syndrome and this appears to be a compensatory reaction to an inadequate heart rate response to standing; (2) The hemodynamic response of DDD patients to the assumption of an upright posture is consistent with autonomic dysfunction; and (3) The primary cause for autonomic dysfunction in DDD patients may be the asynchronous ventricular depolarization caused by right ventricular pacing.
