When an elderly person suddenly rises from a lying to a standing position there can be a substantial drop in their systolic blood pressure. The underperfusion of the central nervous system that occurs can result in symptoms of faintness, dizziness or weakness. Elderly people may fall or collapse. It is estimated that up to 30 per cent of people aged 65–75 years suffer this condition and that up to 50 per cent of people aged 75 years and older are troubled with this complaint. Resting cardiac output declines at about 1 per cent per year beginning in the third decade.
