RESULTS: 25 of the 44 patients (57%) developed a vasovagal response or became symptomatic after 13.8 +/- 5.7 minutes of HUT. Three of the 18 volunteers (17%) had a vasovagal response and became symptomatic after 9 +/- 3 minutes of HUT. There was no statistical difference among the four groups (with and without tilt induced vasovagal response) in terms of age and baseline hemodynamic data. The sensitivity of 20 minutes HUT was 57% and its specificity was 83%. The presyncopal hemodynamic response in patients with history of syncope that was characterized by a significant decrease in systolic blood pressure and lack of increase of diastolic blood pressure as compared with baseline and with other groups.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
