We report the anesthetic management of a parturient with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. This syndrome is associated with hemodynamic instability, which can be worsened by the physiology of labor and delivery. We discuss anesthetic concerns with this disease in the parturient and suggest approaches for management of this disease.
