Cerebral hypoperfusion is inadequate blood flow to the brain.[1][2] Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion is linked to neurocognitive disorders.[2]

Orthostatic cerebral hypoperfusion syndrome[edit | edit source]

Novak (2016) states that orthostatic cerebral hypoperfusion syndrome (OCHOs) is defined by:

  1. abnormal orthostatic drop of cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFv) during the tilt test and
  2. absence of orthostatic hypotension, arrhythmia, vascular abnormalities, or other causes of abnormal orthostatic CBFv[3]

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A fatigue-based illness. The term CFS was invented invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as an replacement for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Some view CFS as a neurological disease, others use the term for any unexplained long-term fatigue. Sometimes used as a the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, despite the different diagnostic criteria.
