Study and venous pooling[edit]

I have a study here which backs up a few of the things I mentioned but didnt reference.. being thou things spread out over the page, Im confused where best this reference is placed. The things the reference supports, the existance of orthostatic dystolic hypertension, the involvement of "hypovolemia" with the disorder. So where do I place the reference? This reference is

For time being Im going to mention the venous pooling syndrome as a symptom and put this link there and hope someone will move it if its better by one of the other things it also supports. (I dont think thou that venous pooling syndrome is a recognised medical term? so will just use the term I know which is often used "venous pooling". I know it appears in the legs with this disorder) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Taniaaust1 (talkcontribs) 08:18, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Reference 2[edit]

The reference which helps to explain what the diastolic side of the disorder is, I dont know if that is the best reference to be being used as Dr David Bell (he is internationally known), he references it back to Dr David Streeten's Medical Text Book "Orthostatic Disorders of the Circulation". One would have to also have a page number thou to use that reference?

Im quite confused as I dont understand how to read references, he referenced the definition of diastolic hypertension to DHP Streeten. Orthostatic Disorders of the Circulation. New York: Plenum, 1986:116 (does that 116 at the end of that reference mean page 116?) is the above reference a complete reference itself?) or is it already fine? (if not .. could someone fix it or find a more suitable reference to support). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Taniaaust1 (talkcontribs) 13:37, 13 December 2011 (UTC)


The first sentence on the wiki page is the reverse of what it should be. Postural hypertension is a DROP in blood pressure not an increase. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:48, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Orthostatic hypertension is lying to sitting, postural is sitting to standing. Please re-word your first few lines.
