The focus of the clinic is to provide compassionate, patient-centred care with a focus on communication to improve the understanding and wellbeing of patients with Transient Loss of Conciousness [TLOC/Syncope].
Most episodes of loss of consciousness (syncope) are due to low blood Pressure. However, it is important to make sure that, there is not a cardiac cause of syncope. As part of Heart Rhythm Clinic, the Syncope Clinic is a leading program for evaluating and treating syncope.
We evaluate and care for cardiac-focused syncope that may be due to either previously undiagnosed structural heart disease or heart rhythm abnormalities.
Common Heart Rhythm Abnormalities which can cause Syncope are:
We also evaluate and manage the most common causes for syncope like neurally mediated syncope [like Vasovagal / common faint], Orthostatic Hypotension and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome [POTS].
Our Heart Rhythm specialist team a doctor, Physician assistant and nurse practitioner, who specialize in assessing, diagnosing, and treating syncope, will do the initial evaluation by taking your history followed by physical exam, orthostatic BP recordings, and ECG to determine the best course of treatment for your condition. Further testing including Echocardiogram, Blood testing and exercise stress testing may be indicated based on the initial evaluation and findings. After initial evaluation, if indicated Neurologist evaluation and opinion also will be taken.
