VNG testing: Though unlikely transient disturbance in cardiac rhythm can occur and if severe theoretically induce arrest,the facility should be equipped to easily handle such a rare occurrence.Specifically ask them to allay your concerns.The risk in your demographic is vary small,if you have the suspect condition then you run the risk spontaneously with each occurrence of symptoms anyway.
