Example text

Syncope due to cardiac arrhythmias generally occurs more quickly than syncope from other causes. Cardiac syncope may occur in any position, is occasionally exercise induced, and may occur in both congenital and acquired forms of heart disease. Although palpitations sometimes occur during arrhythmias, others are unaware of any cardiac symptoms. Syncopal episodes secondary to cardiac arrhythmias may be more prolonged than benign syncope. The most common arrhythmias causing syncope are AV block, SA block, and paroxysmal supraventricular and ventricular tachyarrhythmias.

The patient initially may experience hallucinations or illusions, affective symptoms such as fear or depression, cognitive symptoms such as a sense of depersonalization or unreality, or aphasia. The complex partial seizure generally lasts 1 to 3 minutes but may be shorter or longer. It may become generalized and evolve into a tonic-clonic convulsion. During a complex partial seizure, automatisms, generally more complex than those in absence seizures, may occur. The automatisms may involve continuation of the patient’s activity before the onset of the seizure, or they may be new motor acts.

In elderly patients with cervical skeletal deformities, certain head movements such as hyperextension or lateral rotation can result in syncope secondary to vertebrobasilar arterial ischemia. In these patients, associated vestibular symptoms are common. Occasionally, cerebral vasospasm secondary to basilar artery migraine or subarachnoid hemorrhage may be responsible. Insufficiency of the cerebral circulation frequently causes other neurological symptoms, depending on the circulation involved. Reduction in blood flow in the carotid circulation may lead to loss of consciousness, lightheadedness, giddiness, and a sensation of an impending faint.
