Overview

Fainting, the sudden and often unpredictable loss of consciousness, can be a frightening experience. While often benign, fainting can sometimes be the sign of serious illness. Recurrent fainting can significantly disrupt a person’s life, and make them prone to injury and, on occasion, death.

The Fainting Phenomenon, Second Edition is a valuable information resource for anyone whose life is affected by fainting.

Written for the layperson, this book will help you:

  • Understand the different reasons why people faint and their significance
  • Seek proper medical attention and treatment
  • Deal with related conditions such as Postural Tachycardia Syndrome and Orthostatic Hypertension

This is an indispensable and reassuring guide for parents, families and care givers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book would be a very useful introductory text for medical students and nurses to read … .A useful size and covers theory to an appropriate depth." (Cardiology News, October - November 2007)

Review of edition 1:

This book is packed with information in ‘layman’s terms’ – @we ordinary (non-medical) people’ can then start to understand different types of faints that are being experienced or witnessed. The book can get very technical in parts, but not overly, regarding the heart, brain and systems. The Fainting Phenomenon book by Blair Grub should be in every surgery in the UK, it is a must that every Dr should have to hand. This is also a very good book for anyone who faints, be they patient, parents or carers, it will set them off on the road to ask the right questions with medical people to obtain a diagnosis for faints to put people (old or young) who suffer from this phenomenon at ease.
It is a must read and should be a best seller in every UK surgery and hospital!
