There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Doctors at Boston Children’s use tilt table evaluation to identify the cause of your child’s fainting. During a tilt table evaluation, your child lies flat on a special bed while connected to blood pressure and EKG monitors. The bed changes position from standing to lying flat to test for differences in reaction between the two.
Repeated fainting can have various causes.
Please have your child come in with an empty stomach. She should not eat for at least eight hours before the test.
Your child’s results will be evaluated with a member from the cardiology department, or your child’s regular cardiologist. If the test does not cause a fainting episode and/or the EKG and blood pressure readings are normal, further tests may be necessary.
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.”
