Sphygmomanometer Case of dizziness; should do orthostatic BPs!

In case of dizziness we need to do orthostatic vital signs check..does it mean we need to check BP in 3 position (sitting, standing & lying)..? but how come it possible to manage time?

Leave blood pressure measurement to the last, if you have time for it, do it. If no time, just skip it and then you can say in the patient note
Orthostatic studies need to be performed.
In the list of your future investigations.

Remember that blood pressure is available in the doorway information and you rarely ever need to measure it.
