Tilt Testing

What is a tilt table test?

The tilt table test (also called a head upright tilt test) records your blood pressure, heart rhythm and heart rate on a beat-by-beat basis as the table is tilted to different angles. The table always stays head-up.

The test shows how different positions affect your heart rate, heart rhythm and blood pressure. Your doctor uses this information to determine the cause of symptoms like light-headedness and fainting spells (syncope) and develop the best treatment plan for you.

If you are looking for more information about this condition, please call 1-866-STLUKES and you will be connected to our Cardiovascular team who can make an appointment with a cardiologist, cardiac surgeon or vascular surgeon who can best care for you.
