A tilt table test is used to invesitigate collapse (syncope). It will help to find out if a patients symptoms are associated with a sudden drop in heart rate or blood pressure. It is usually performed as an outpatient procedure.

Patients are secured to a table that can be moved slowly from horizontal to vertical so that they move from a lying to standing position. During the test patients blood pressure and heart rhythm are monitored.
