Tilt Table Testing

This is a simple test that can help identify the causes of fainting by detecting a phenomenon known as postural or orthostatic hypotension. It involves placing a patient on a table with a foot-support, then tilting the table upward to a vertical position. The patient's blood pressure, pulse, and symptoms are monitored throughout the test by a nurse and physician.
