Tilt Table investigation
What is autonomous functional diagnostics?
Autonomous functional diagnostics is a medical procedure to check the functionality of the autonomic nervous system (ANS).
It includes tests such as heart rate variability, blood pressure and respiratory rate, thermal stimulation, and upright posture.
These tests can reveal dysfunctions of the ANS and help identify health problems such as stress, high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease.
Neuro Praxis Düsseldorf carries out this examination at two state-of-the-art measuring stations - as one of only a handful of locations in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Course of the investigation
During the tilt table examination, we will raise you up to the 70° position together with the tilt table. This happens very slowly. All the while you will be fully secured by tethers. You should relax and keep conversations to a minimum throughout the examination. Of course, we would like to ask you to inform us of any changes in your condition (e.g. dizziness, feeling hot). The duration of the examination depends on the one hand on the suspected circulatory disorder. On the other hand, the examination time depends on the symptoms you have expressed or the changes in blood pressure and pulse. The examination usually lasts about 45 minutes.
