Abstract

Which patient characteristics should raise your level of concern about syncope? Was the episode really syncopal, or might it have been a seizure? Which forms of structural heart disease should you suspect and when? Should the patient undergo computed tomography scanning of the head? The authors address these and other issues associated with an often innocent but always worrisome symptom.
