Syncope – NOT collapse ? cause

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”)


  1. Was it Syncope?
  2. What is the cause?
  3. NO cause found – risk stratify (whats the risk?)

Remember DVLA must be informed if: No diagnosis, Cardiac, Seizure, No prodrome.
