  2. 2.

    Under the heading “Active standing versus passive HUT” the word ‘the difference’ was omitted in the 4th sentence. The complete corrected sentence is given below.

     

The orthostatic BP fall was greater under HUT than under active standing and the difference was smaller than 5 mmHg.
