Vasovagal Syncope | Syncope Prediction Study

Vasovagal Syncope research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

The purpose of this study is to perform a prospective evaluation of the vasovagal syncope prediction algorithm, called Tilt Test Analyzer, during head up tilt testing tests in one center in the United Kingdom.

Who is eligible to participate?

Inclusion Criteria: - Patients referred to the center with vasovagal syncope for tilt testing. - The patient is willing and able to cooperate with the study procedures. - The subject or legal guardian is able to provide written informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Patients under 18 years or over 90 years old. - Women who are currently pregnant or have a positive pregnancy test. - Patients who had a prior tilt test. - Patients enrolled in another device or drug study.
