Tilt Table Testing

Patients are placed on a table with straps placed around their legs, midsection, and chest to secure them in place and connected for continuous EKG and blood pressure monitoring. The table is then tilted head up to mimic standing in a stationary position. A drug such as nitroglycerin may be used to enhance the possibility of the patient passing out. The test is used to evaluate patients who have unexplained passing out (syncope) dizziness etc.
