WHAT IS TILT TABLE TEST (HEAD-UP TILT TABLE TEST)?

WHAT IS TILT TABLE TEST (HEAD-UP TILT TABLE TEST)?

The head-upright table, by the sudden assumption of an upright position, can produce passive orthostatic stress, which induces syncope in individuals affected by vasovagal (neurally mediated) syncope. Administration of intravenous isoproterenol (Isuprel) infusion increases the sensitivity of the tilt table test for those susceptible to vasovagal syncope by producing the elevation of circulating catecholamines associated with this type of event.
