A tilt table test is used to evaluate the cause of unexplained fainting (syncope). During a tilt table test, you lie on a table and straps are placed around your body to hold you in place. Then, the table is tilted to raise your body to a head-up position , simulating a change in position from lying down to standing up This test allows doctors to evaluate your body's cardiovascular response to the change in position. Your doctor may recommend a tilt table test if he or she suspects that neurocardiogenic syncope is responsible for your fainting. This condition occurs when the part of your nervous system that controls blood flow changes your heart rate and lowers your blood pressure for a short time. Then, less blood flows to your brain and you may faint.

If you have any questions, you can consult with Dr. Jimenez or Dr Sanchez for an appointment.
