Vasovagal Syncope Symptoms, Signs and Causes

The last thing to talk about is the way doctors diagnose the reflex syncope. The physician should review your full medical history before deciding on the physical tests you must pass. As far as the problems are mostly associated with the heart rate and blood pressure, it is important to start from the elementary procedure: measuring your pressure and rate. Be ready to take an electrocardiogram (ECG) to measure the heart’s rhythm.

Watch out as there are many other types of syncope. In some cases, fainting may be even more dangerous than you think. It is not enough for a physician to define the initial cause with the naked eye.

The following examinations may help to identify the form of syncope and the reasons for fainting to take place: permanent, prolong portable electrocardiogram monitoring, stress exam, blood tests, and echocardiogram.
