• Micturition Syncope
  • There is no specific treatment for micturition syncope. (wikipedia.org)
  • General advice to men with micturition syncope includes: to sit while urinating to sit on the edge of the bed for a while before getting up and going to the toilet to avoid urinating while sleepy to urinate before sleep to stop urination, cross the legs, and flex them immediately upon feeling faintness Padevit C. (wikipedia.org)
  • Typical triggers include: Prolonged standing Emotional stress Pain The sight of blood Time varying magnetic field (i.e. transcranial magnetic stimulation) After or during urination (micturition syncope) Straining, such as to have a bowel movement Coughing Swallowing Lifting a heavy weight Pressing upon a certain spot in the neck.

  • Cardiac
  • What is cardiac syncope? (heart.org)
  • People suspected of having cardiac syncope but who don't have serious medical conditions may be managed as outpatients. (heart.org)
  • This observational study was designed to identify the predictive factors for pacemaker implantation in a population of patients receiving an implantable loop recorder for unexplained syncope with negative cardiac and neurologic workup. (medpagetoday.com)
  • In roughly 30% of syncope patients, clinicians cannot determine the etiology of the condition -- and this is despite extensive neurological and cardiac work-ups. (medpagetoday.com)
  • concussion
  • Syncope may be caused by a variety of mechanisms, but isn't caused by head injury , which is considered a concussion . (rxlist.com)
  • frogs
  • Syncope is a genus of microhylid frogs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Syncope bassleri are relatively small frogs: males measure about 15-20 mm (0.59-0.79 in) and females about 21-26 mm (0.83-1.02 in) in snout-vent length. (wikipedia.org)
  • trigger
  • Many non life-threatening factors, such as overheating, dehydration, heavy sweating, exhaustion or the pooling of blood in the legs due to sudden changes in body position, can trigger syncope. (heart.org)
  • bradycardia
  • However, several serious heart conditions, such as bradycardia , tachycardia or blood flow obstruction, can also cause syncope. (heart.org)
  • An advanced age, a history of trauma secondary to syncope, and the detection of periods of asymptomatic bradycardia during conventional ECG monitoring were independent predictive factors for bradyarrhythmias requiring pacemaker implantation. (medpagetoday.com)
  • diagnosis
  • Those with bradyarrhythmia related to syncope had a significantly shorter time to diagnosis compared with the others (median 5 months, range 0 to 14 versus 13 months, range 0 to 28. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The diagnosis of heat syncope is done during a physical examination. (wikipedia.org)
  • benign
  • Perhaps the most important factor to be established when evaluating a patient with syncope is whether the likely cause is benign or if it may be graver, and requires immediate clinical attention. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • Most times, syncope is a relatively benign situation. (rxlist.com)
  • common
  • Syncope is common, but adults over age 80 are at greater risk of hospitalization and death. (heart.org)
  • Syncope hudsoni (common name: Hudson's humming frog) is a species of frog in the Microhylidae family. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Syncope is usually short in duration (20-30 seconds) and in the majority of cases, patients rarely seek medical attention. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • However, despite its relative frequency, many studies have suggested that up to 40% of patients admitted with syncope will be discharged without a clear and conclusive etiology of their syncopal event. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • That the mechanism for syncope couldn't be determined with the battery of expensive tests confirms the "relative uselessness of these tests in the evaluation of patients with unexplained syncope," Palmisano and colleagues wrote. (medpagetoday.com)
  • In particular, they said, the fact that invasive electrophysiology studies came up empty "should discourage the routine use of this expensive and invasive test in the patients with unexplained syncope, even when an arrhythmic aetiology is suspected. (medpagetoday.com)
  • This finding emphasizes the need to adopt more intensive monitoring systems of arrhythmic events in patients receiving an ILR for suspected arrhythmic syncope," they wrote in conclusion. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Patients, as in this case, might present initially to the ED, and laughter should be considered among the numerous differentials for syncope. (wikipedia.org)
  • rule
  • Old Norse himnar "heavens" A syncope rule has been identified in Tonkawa, an extinct American Indian language in which the second vowel of a word was deleted unless it was adjacent to a consonant cluster or a final consonant. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood pressure
  • Anyone with syncope should receive an initial evaluation, including detailed physical and history examinations and measurement of blood pressure and heart rate, by a physician. (heart.org)
  • This definition does not require a fall in systemic blood pressure -- one might envision instead syncope due to choking and pressure on both carotids. (dizziness-and-balance.com)
  • If the patient is experiencing heat syncope the blood pressure will be low, and the pulse will be elevated. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • Syncope jimi is a species of frog in the Microhylidae family.It is endemic to Brazil and known from Humaitá, Amazonas, its type locality in Amazonas and from the Pará state. (wikipedia.org)
