Cardiovascular Syncope Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Cardiovascular syncope is a sudden collapse into unconsciousness due to a disorder of heart rhythm in which there is a slow or absent pulse resulting in syncope (fainting) with or without convulsions. In this condition, the normal heartbeat passing from the upper chambers of the heart to the lower chambers is interrupted. This results in a condition called a heart block. When a heart block occurs, the heart rate usually slows considerably. This can cause inadequate blood flow to the brain and result in fainting. This condition known as a Stokes Adams attack and many other names reflecting the fact that many doctors have claimed this territory for themselves.
