How long does head-up tilt table test take?

ANSWER

It usually takes an hour or two to complete. That may vary, depending on how your blood pressure and heart rate change and what symptoms you have during it.

Before the test begins, a nurse will start an IV. This is so the doctors and nurses may give you medications and fluids during the procedure if necessary.

You’ll be awake during the test. They’ll ask you to lie quietly and keep your legs still.
