While childhood conditions like Kawasaki Disease (KD) and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) are rare, it is important for healthcare professionals to be familiar with the epidemiology of these conditions, the tests used to diagnose the conditions, and the protocols used to treat the patients. Kawasaki Disease affects the blood vessels, with damage to the heart being the biggest concern. POTS develops as a result of changing body positions, especially from a seated to a standing position, with the main symptom being an increased heart rate. This course will provide important information to Athletic Trainers on both of these conditions. Included in the presentation will be the epidemiology of the condition, procedures for diagnosing the conditions, and treatment protocols.
1) Identify the signs and symptoms associated with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) and Kawasaki Disease.
2) Describe the diagnostic tests that are used to confirm or rule out POTS and Kawasaki Disease.
3) Discuss the various protocols used to treat POTS and Kawasaki Disease.
