Re: tilt table

From: jim


I'am 37 and just took the tilt table test . It's a simple way to diagnos vaso vagal syncope, They lay you down on a table on your back , hook up blood pressure, heart monitor and oxygen monitor, read all data before starting then tilt you up to 70 degrees (almost standing position), and monitor you for 30 minutes. After 5 min. I started felling sick , dizzy and cold sweat, it was amazing how a simple test could bring it on. HIGHLY RECOMENDED I've only had a few spells and the doctor suggested a pace maker. It's suppose to stop the heart rate from dropping and passing out. Hope this helps
