Syncope can be a bit of a heart sink. However, if you ask 3 simple(ish) questions, you can improve the outcome for patients. (Remember universal hospital admission is not “SAFE”)
- Was it Syncope?
- What is the cause?
- NO cause found – risk stratify (whats the risk?)
Remember DVLA must be informed if: No diagnosis, Cardiac, Seizure, No prodrome.
