Tilt table testing at Spire Bristol

Tilt table testing is often used to diagnose a common cause of fainting or syncope.

Tilt table testing now available at Spire Bristol Hospital

Patients with symptoms of dizziness or lightheadedness - with or without a loss of consciousness - suspected to be associated with a drop in blood pressure or heart rate are good candidates for this test.

The procedure tests for causes of syncope by attempting to cause an episode of syncope. This involves the patient lying on a special table or bed while connected to an ECG and blood pressure monitors. The table then creates a change in posture from lying to standing.

The procedure usually takes around an hour and a half, and during the procedure you will be looked after by an experienced Cardiac Physiologist.
