Seizure, Syncope and Sudden Collapse, By Associate Professor Peter Kas, looks at the causes of syncope and simplifies these causes by looking at two broad categories;
- Is it cardiac or Not?
- Is it syncope PLUS something else?
The aim is to exclude the cardiac causes of syncope and those causes that aren’t cardiac but are still sinister i.e..AMI, PE, AAA, Dissection, SAH.
We also look at the ECG’s of Syncope, using Prof Kas’s well known mnemonic “A2,B2,C,W and long QT and the ECGs of PE“
