Tilt Table Testing

Fainting (syncope) can have many causes, only some of which are heart related. Tilt table testing tries to discover these causes. It shows how your child's heart rate and blood pressure react to changes in position. Your child will lie on a table that is tilted at various angles, while continuous ECG and blood pressure readings are taken.
