The evaluation of adults with syncope is also discussed elsewhere. (See "Emergency evaluation of syncope in children and adolescents" and "Syncope in adults: Clinical manifestations and diagnostic evaluation".) BACKGROUND. Syncope is a sudden, brief loss of consciousness associated with loss of postural tone from which recovery is spontaneous.   Syncope in childhood is very common. The vast majority of episodes are benign, and are due to neurocardiogenic syncope. Only a minority are due to something potentially more serious or life threatening. The diagnosis and differentiation of benign from more serious causes of syncope is made primarily by the history. Investigations are often by:

Population of Patients. From October through March , 70 patients with a history of recurrent syncope were found to have abnormal responses to head-up tilt by: (See "Causes of syncope in children and adolescents" and "Approach to the adult patient with syncope in the emergency department".) DEFINITION AND CAUSES Syncope is a sudden, brief loss of consciousness associated with loss of postural tone from which recovery is spontaneous [ 1 ].

Objective: We assessed the prevalence and distribution of the different causes of transient loss of consciousness (TLOC) in the emergency department (ED) and chest pain unit (CPU) and estimated the proportion of persons with syncope in the general population who seek medical attention from either their general practitioner or the ED/ by:   Assessment of risk for serious cardiovascular outcome after syncope is difficult. To determine the incidence of first syncope in primary care. To investigate the relation between syncope and serious cardiovascular (CV) outcome and serious injury. Retrospective cohort study using data from the Intego general practice-based registration network, collecting data from 55 general practices (90 Cited by:

Syncope is a clinical syndrome in which transient loss of consciousness (TLOC) is caused by a period of inadequate cerebral nutrient flow, most often the result of an abrupt drop of systemic blood pressure.
