tilt test

tilt test

any measurement of response during tilting of the body, usually head up but also head down. The test may be monitored by catheterization, echocardiography, electrophysiologic measurements, electrocardiography, or mechanocardiography.

Upright tilt test Cardiology A clinical maneuver in which a person is placed in a head-up position on a tilt table at a 40º to 80º from horizontal and maintained in a motionless upright position for ≥ 10-15 mins, the intent being to provoke syncope, bradycardia, or hypotension; the resulting gravitational pooling of blood volume evokes a decline in CVP, stroke volume, and bp; the TT may be used to detect neurocardiogenic syncope
