Tilt Table Study Test at Conway Medical Center
What Is a Tilt Table Study Test?
A tilt table study test is done for diagnostic and drug therapy evaluations with the use of a special table called a “Tilt Table” under controlled conditions. These studies are typically done in an attempt to induce the symptomatic fainting (syncopal) episode and/or heart rhythm changes (arrhythmia), providing insight to your provider that aids in diagnosing potential conditions or evaluating the effectiveness of a particular course of treatment.
This tilt table study test is performed by your physician and registered nurse in both the inpatient and outpatient setting at the CMC Cardiac Cath lab.
We want you to be as prepared as possible before undergoing any procedures while in our care. You should always make sure to have a conversation with your provider about any questions or concerns you may have beforehand.
Your doctor may recommend additional treatment or medication depending on your diagnosis and outcome of your tilt table study.
