March Webinar: Blood flow

Going With the Flow -- Blood Flow That Is

Please join us for our third 2010 Webinar!
Thursday, March 18, 2010
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.  (Eastern Daylight Time)

Guest Speaker: Marvin Medow, PhD, New York Medical College

It has long been established that many people with CFS experience symptoms like
light-headedness, dizziness, shortness of breath and other symptoms 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.

Dr. Medow is a physiologist and associate director of the Center for Hypotension at New York Medical College, where he works with Julian Stewart, MD, a longtime
CFS researcher.

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. Suzanne D. Vernon, PhD, scientific
director of the CFIDS Association of America, will moderate the program.

This program is the third in the CFIDS Association's 2010 webinar series. To learn
