Tilt table testing is a well approached examination for differentiating unexplained syncope and control trial after therapy. It is evaluated at children and is fast and reliable in spite of high personality effort. We present the indication of examination, course of examination, additional procedures like transcranial doppler sonography, reaction models during the tilt table examination and treatment features for neurocardiogenic syncope.
