Re: Tilt table test lasting only 15 minutes?

From: Becca


I would say it was probably done correctly, it is true that it should last for 45 minutes. However, it is vital that the table is put right the moment any symptoms appear, mine wasn't and since then my VV has got a lot worse and I have other problems linked with being on the table as well.

Be very thankful the doctor rightened it; I am sure they got all the data they needed, you don't need to pass out to have a positive test, so don't worry : )
