This study surveyed current practice patterns with respect to the manner by which cardiac arrhythmia specialists advise patients with vasovagal syncope regarding resumption of motor vehicle operation. Among 66 physician- respondents from 9 countries, 98% indicated that they rely on tilt-table testing to establish a diagnosis, and, if an effective treatment is found based on serial tilt-table testing, they recommend a 6- to 7-week symptom- free waiting period before advising return to driving.
