Welcome to the induction module on syncope. The core of this section is the video from the Southampton Emergency Medicine Education Project below.
Watch this and answer the questions on the quiz below the video. Feel free to scroll back through the video if you want to find the answers.
We have included some further resources on syncope below the questions but these are not required to pass the module.
We do not currently have syncope out-patient clinics available in MMUH: it is our job to diagnose the life threatening causes, or if necessary admit the patient to rule out life threatening causes. If these aren’t a concern, the patient can be discharged back to their GP for follow up.
