S yncope is a transient loss of consciousness and postural tone with spontaneous, complete recovery. There are three major types: neu-rally mediated, orthostatic, and cardiac (TABLE 1). ■ NEURALLY MEDIATED SYNCOPE Neurally mediated (reflex) syncope is the most common type, accounting for two-thirds of cases. It results from autonomic reflexes that respond inappropriately, leading to vasodila-tion and bradycardia. Neurally mediated syncope is usually preceded by premonitory symptoms such as… Expand
