Diagnosing the reasons for constant fainting and dizziness through the Tilt Table Test
There are many people who constantly experience heart symptoms such as dizziness, light-headedness or fainting. Though this may seem trivial, they can be dangerous especially if the patient is working in any rough work environments or high altitudes. In order to monitor and determine the cause of such symptoms, a tilt table test is generally used. This procedure is non-invasive and is very efficient because of its simple and straightforward approach in tackling the problem.
Tilt table tests are used extensively to detect a phenomenon in the patients known as postural hypotension. Generally, when a person stands upright, the force of gravity causes pooling of blood near the legs.
