Tilt table evaluation is a procedure that doctors use to diagnose syncope, or fainting.

How Boston Children’s Hospital approaches tilt table evaluation

Causes of fainting are usually determined via EKG; Boston Children’s performs more than 20,000 EKGs a year. Because frequent fainting can be a sign of a larger cardiovascular issue, Boston Children’s researchers take fainting very seriously. Fainting during exercise is the most serious; to that end, Children’s unique program in Exercise Physiology performs more than 1,900 exercise tests a year.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
