Surveillance proposal

We propose updating the recommendations related to the measurement of blood pressure in suspected 'postural' or 'orthostatic' hypotension in the NICE guideline on hypertension (NG136) and NICE guideline on transient loss of consciousness (CG109). Going forward, only the term 'postural hypotension' will be used in NICE guidelines. Amendments will be made to all other NICE guidelines which mention 'orthostatic hypotension', so that only the term 'postural hypotension' is consistently used.
