Tilt Table Test (TTT)
What is it?
This investigation is used to evaluate unexplained causes of fainting episodes (syncope).
Why do I need one?
You may have experienced fainting episodes and your Cardiologist recommended this test to further evaluate the cause. Or, you may have experienced a vasovagal syncope and your Cardiologist may require a TTT to further confirm the diagnosis.
Vasovagal syncope is a condition whereby your blood pressure and heart rate lower for a brief period of time, usually in response to stress from fear and pain. Occasionally, it can occur without any cause.
