Re: Vaso Vagal Syncope (neurally mediated syncope)



Our daughter also has these episodes with pain or stress. She had a Tilt Table Test done today and within nine minutes she had passed out. Her heart actually stopped for 14 seconds. Her Cardiologist is going to prescribe a beta blocker . She is Seven years old and this was her fourth episode. VERY scarey!!!! You may want to ask to have this procedure done to determine that it is Vaso Vagal Syncope. It is a little scarey, but will give you an answer one way or the other. Good Luck!
