Reflex Syncope Treatments - An Overview
Syncope is a sudden loss of consciousness where you go limp without any warning and recover after some time. Fainting can occur because of low blood pressure (hypotension, or low heart rate), which may happen if the heart does not supply adequate oxygen to the brain.
Most often, these fainting spells do not last for more than a few seconds or minutes. Moreover, Syncope is quite common and can happen to anyone occasionally. Not all fainting spells are serious, too. However, sometimes, Syncope can be a warning symptom of an impending sudden cardiac death, and hence, it is always better to go for a proper syncope treatment. Also, fainting spells can cause serious injuries.
