German term or phrase: Kollapsneigung
"Bei hypotonen und kreislauflabilen Patienten ist die Infusionsbehandlung einschleichend vorzunehmen, da in diesen Fällen alle durchblutungsfördernden Präparate zu einer passageren Blutdrucksenkung mit Kollapsneigung und vereinzelt zu stenokardischen Beschwerden führen können."

tendency to collapse
Explanation:
Kollaps = collaps, syncopal attack, syncope

e.g.:
Too rapid infusion may produce sensation of warmth, palpitations and tendency to collapse.
http://www.iv-partner.com/index.cfm?5BE39E8A3FCA4F8BAA0921F4...

In patients with hypotension and circulatory instability, injection or
infusion therapy should be introduced gradually, because all agents
which promote blood flow may produce transient hypotension coupled with tendency to collapse and in isolated cases, may result in anginal discomfort.

Reference: Ohnmacht (Synkope, <u>Kollaps</u>)

Reference information:
Eine Ohnmacht (Synkope) ist eine kurze Bewusstlosigkeit, die durch eine vorübergehende Durchblutungsstörung im Gehirn verursacht wird. Dauert die Ohnmacht länger als einige Minuten muss umgehend ein Arzt gerufen werden.

Im Gegensatz zur echten Bewusstlosigkeit (Koma) besteht für den Ohnmächtigen meist keine direkte Lebensgefahr.

Oxford Dictionary of Sports Science & Medicine:
collapse
A condition of extreme prostration, associated with sudden loss of consciousness due to faulty circulation such as might occur from a defective heart, shock, or haemorrhage. Although the collapse of an athlete following strenuous activity may be physiological (for example, a marathon runner who stops suddenly at the end of a race may collapse because of the pooling of blood in the legs), any collapse should be investigated completely to eliminate sinister causes.

If I may put my two cents in, then going by the references above, it's best to translate the German 'Kollaps' with 'collapse' without qualifying it any further. Calling it 'fainting' or 'circulatory collapse' in translation would tantamount to an addition of meaning to the idea conveyed by the German term.
