Harbor Macros: Syncope


This patient has a low risk of a significant etiology causing their syncope given that their age less than 60, they have no family history of sudden death, and have no history of CHF, CAD, congenital heart disease or ventricular arrhythmias. Also, the circumstances surrounding the syncopal event are not consistent with ACS and there is no current evidence of CHF or valvular heart disease, no significantly abnormal ECG, nor exertional syncope. Using prediction rules for syncope, this patient is safe for discharge and outpatient evaluation.
