  • Abstract

    This was a large self-report, cross-sectional study of 360 people with physician diagnosed postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). Using the Fennell Phase Inventory, we found that people that qualified for the Crisis phase in this developmental survey were in more significant psychological distress than those placed in the Stabilization, Resolution, or Integration phases.
