Heart Tilt Table Test
Tilt Table Test TTT: Ttt is used to detect autonomic insufficiency or problems regulating blood pressure (BP) that can lead to passing out spells. The patient is strapped to a comfortable table (snug enough to hold) and then placed head upright at 70-80?. BP and heart rate are continually monitored. If BP falls or the patient passes out, this is a positive test. The pt is quickly laid flat again. Lasts about 30 min. ...Read more

Get referred to one for best treatment options. Review Dr. Blair Grubb's websites for better understanding and treatment suggestions. ...Read more

Heart pounding: Your normal ekg and echocardiogram are reassuring that you have a normal heart although coronary arteries are not evaluated in those studies.
