About this Book

Syncope is one of the most important causes of transient loss of consciousness, and is such a common event that it may be encountered by practitioners in virtually any field of medicine. As such, a broad spectrum of healthcare professionals may be involved in its assessment and management.

Edited by distinguished individuals whose pioneering work in syncope highlights careers devoted to improving patient care, this book provides:
• Succinct, practical and up-to-date guidance on the optimal clinical evaluation and treatment of patients with syncope and transient loss of consciousness in a multidisciplinary framework
• Evidence-based recommendations founded on comprehensive literature review and extensive clinical experience by expert contributors
• Meaningful clinical tips for appropriate use of guidelines in clinical practice
• Key recent citations

Building on the European Society of Cardiology Syncope Guidelines, this book provides a clear evaluation of the latest recommendations for care of patients with syncope and transient loss of consciousness, with a multidisciplinary focus that makes it equally relevant for general physicians or those specializing in cardiology or neurology.
