A good differentiation between orthostatic normal and dysregulated patients could be made due to the difference in venous capacitive drop in the lower extremities. This was done in 60 cases of patients with organically normal cardio-vascular systems using the sit-up test in conjunction with venous occlusion rheography. With this set up it is possible to verify at least a tendency towards normalisation of a positive orthostatic reaction after administration of alpha-receptor stimulants as well as beta-receptor depressants when compared to a placebo.
