My name is Amy Crandall, and I am in twelfth grade at Dawson Creek Secondary – South Peace Campus. My favourite subjects are the health sciences, biology, English, and calculus. In my spare time, I love to write novels while listening to my wide range of music playlists, read, and spend time with loved ones. I’ve been involved in science fairs for eleven years--participating in the Northern BC Regional Science Fair for nine of those years. I am very excited to attend the Canada-Wide Science Fair for the third time. At the 2019 Northern BC Regional Science Fair, I was the recipient of the Genome Scholarship Nomination and the First Place Senior Project. After being diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) in June of 2014, I wanted to investigate the possible benefits of exercise for this syndrome, as there is no cure. This is my third rendition of the project. If I have the opportunity in the future, I’d love to study the benefits of vagus nerve stimulation on the autonomic nervous system. My advice to anyone considering creating a science fair project is to investigate what you are passionate about.

A Non-Pharmaceutical Treatment for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome III
Région:Northern British Columbia
Ville:Rolla, BC
École:South Peace Secondary
Sommaire:A Non-Pharmaceutical Treatment for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome [POTS] III examines current POTS treatment practices and, based on previous results (Crandall, 2018), determine if physical exertion is a viable treatment option that effectively treats the most debilitating symptoms of: fatigue, syncope, and vertigo. With approximately fifty-thousand Canadians suffering with POTS, this research aims to guide further research and validate physical exertion as a treatment option.
