introduction

  • vasovagal syncope is a common and relatively benign cause of syncope which is the most common cause of syncope / near syncope in adolescents and young adults
  • it should be differentiated from more serious causes such as prolonged QT syndrome and causes such as neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH) and postural tachycardia syndrome

genetics
