    Going With the Flow – Blood Flow, That Is
    Speaker: Marvin Medow, PhD, New York Medical College
    Date: Thursday, March 25, 2010
    Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT

    It has long been established that many people with CFS experience symptoms like light-headedness associated with upright posture, broadly called orthostatic intolerance. Is it possible that these symptoms could be connected to impaired blood flow, ultimately reducing the amount of blood that flows to the brain? That's what researcher Marvin Medow, PhD, and his team at New York Medical College are investigating with their grant from the CFIDS Association of America. At this webinar, Dr. Medow will describe his study and the techniques his team uses to measure blood flow and chemical changes that may explain many of the symptoms experienced by CFS patients. You'll learn more about orthostatic intolerance, tilt table testing, transcranial Doppler and microdialysis.

    just saw this... did you listen? What did you think?

    I find it hard to listen to things, would rather read a transcript personally. I didn't see where transcripts might be available tho.
