Pavri offers this concise reference for clinicians on evaluating cases of syncope. History, definitions, and epidemiology are outlined first, followed by a review of causes. The book then discusses the examination of patients, including history, physical examination, ECG, and risk assessment, as well as more involved tests such as tilt table testing, exercise stress testing, electrophysiological and neurological evaluation. Evaluation of the need for restrictions on activities such as driving, flying, and sports is briefly covered. The second half of the book goes into more detail on particular syncope syndromes and causes, including presentation in pacemaker/cardioverter-defibrillator patients, children, athletes, the elderly, and situational syncope, as well as carotid hypersensitivity syndrome, iatrogenic causes, and miscellaneous causes, with three chapters devoted to the treatment of vasovagal and arrhythmic syncopes.
