Neurally Mediated Syncope: Pathophysiology, Investigations and Treatment

Overview

Some pathological conditions cannot be explained solely on a cardiac or vascular basis. Hence, an understanding of the complex relationships between the cardiovascular and central nervous systems is extremely important in both caring for patients and furthering knowledge.

This volume provides readers with a thorough overview of the present state of knowledge with regard to neurocardiogenic syncope, aiming to assist physicians and researchers in both furthering their understanding of this complex subject and in caring for patients. The book addresses both theoretical areas on pathophysiology, and also covers new testing techniques, including the introduction of the hugely significant head-up tilt test. Emerging data on the treatment of vasovagal syncope is examined along with the effect of primary orthostatic hypotension on the pathophysiology of carotid sinus syndrome.

Clinical cardiologists, electrophysiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, technologists, and others involved in the care of patients with arrhythmias will all appreciate this book’s direct, accurate information.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
