Cardiac Syncope

more about Cardiac Syncope

  • Cardiac syncope means loss of consciousness or fainting due to the heart not pumping enough blood to the brain.

  • Fainting especially without an inciting cause (such as fright)

  • Heart and lung exam performed
  • EKG is checked
  • Echocardiogram may be needed

  • Treat the underlying cause. For example, Ventricular Fibrillation may cause Cardiac Arrest, requiring advanced cardiac life support care to follow (see section on Cardiac Arrest).
  • In all cases, 911 should be called. If the patient does not have a pulse and/or is not breathing, CPR should be started (but if only one person is present, call 911 first, and then begin CPR)
