SYNCOPE (FAINTING)

What Causes Syncope?

Fainting usually occurs when the heart isn’t able to pump a normal amount of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. This can be caused by many things, including: pain, overheating, dehydration, emotional distress, exhaustion, some medicines, rapid changes in blood pressure or body position, underlying medical conditions. 

What are the Symptoms of Fainting?

Passing out or feeling like you are about to pass out. 

What Can be Done to Diagnose Fainting?

How is Fainting Treated?

Treatment for fainting will vary depending on what is causing it. You may need to make adjustments to your lifestyle, including changes to medications or diet and avoiding things that trigger fainting. Common triggers include standing in one place for long periods of time, heat exposure, straining as when having a bowel movement.
