Abstract: Reviews 23 studies which offer eight interventions, either physical modalities (exercise, FES, compression, physical countermeasures, compression with physical countermeasures, sleeping with head up) or dietary measures (changed water intake, change in meals). Finds strong evidence that four of these are effective, in specific populations: FES in SCI, compression of the legs and/or abdomen, physical countermeasures in various patient populations, and eating smaller and more frequent meals in chronic autonomic failure.
