2017 May - Syncope

Happy May Everyone!

Syncope: a Greek word meaning "to cut off" such as to cut off blood flow to the brain or light to the eyes.

Dun fell out: an American word meaning kind the same thing but pretty much whatever it wants to mean. 

Seizure: Any (and I mean ANY) movement observed by a lay person after someone has experience syncope or has dun fell out. 

What is it? How to I treat it? What do I do with it? No matter how you define these words, it is a pain in the neck to figure out what's going on with a patient with this complaint. Fortunately, we here at AZEMCast have devised a simple, easy way to be just as confused as we are ;) Take a lesiurely stroll with us through the literature, through some cases and through the minefield that is the syncopal patient.
