Medications for Syncope
Other names: Fainting; Neurocardiogenic Syncope; Vasovagal Syncope
Syncope is temporary loss of consciousness and posture, described as "fainting" or "passing out." It's usually related to temporary insufficient blood flow to the brain. It's a common problem, accounting for 3 percent of emergency room visits and 6 percent of hospital admissions.
It most often occurs when the blood pressure is too low (hypotension) and the heart doesn't pump a normal supply of oxygen to the brain.
Note: There are currently no drugs listed for "Syncope".
