Syncope is a common condition related to transient loss of consciousness due to global cerebral hypoperfusion and caused by a variety of aetiologies. Although it is self-limited, and usually benign, syncope can be the harbinger of life-threatening heart rhythm problems due to cardiac conditions. A multidisciplinary approach is practical for its evaluation and treatment, requiring the expertise of cardiologists, neurologists, emergency medicine specialists, and other clinicians. This book provides a detailed review of etiopathogenesis and a state-of the art update on therapeutic options offering recommendations based on the guidelines and experience of experts while discussing procedures and tests with their indications, methodology, interpretation, and limitations.

Key Features: 1. Discusses new diagnostic tools, and therapeutic modalities, with supportive videos in each chapter. 2. Provides up-to-date recommendations regarding the indications for and appropriate interpretation of non-invasive and invasive cardiac testing, for cardiologists and internists. 3. Places particular emphasis on diagnosing and treating reflex and arrhythmic syncope.
