Written for the layperson, this book will help you:


  • Understand the different reasons why people faint and their significance
  • Seek proper medical attention and treatment
  • Deal with related conditions such as Postural Tachycardia Syndrome and Orthostatic Hypertension


This is an indispensable and reassuring guide for parents, families and care givers.
