Hi Dr Driscoll
The only thing i dont understand if we are prone to blood clotting, how can POTs patients have low blood volume if thats the case? Can you have low blood volume but be prone to clotting then?
GREAT question!! I would like to know how they determine our blood volume. I wonder if they assume a certain blood “thickness” in their calculation, and the results are skewed because of a false assumption? I often wondered if patients who were helped with saline IV’s were actually benefiting from the saline thinning the blood? I don’t have an answer for you, but again, I’d love to know how the calculation for our blood volume is obtained. I think that will give us the answer! 🙂
