Syncope in the older person: a review

  • Samiran Nath (a1) and Rose Anne Kenny (a2)

Abstract

‘Syncope’ is derived from the Greek words ‘syn’ (meaning ‘together’) and ‘koptein’ (meaning ‘cut’). It is a syndrome characterized by transient loss of consciousness resulting from temporary and self-limited cerebral hypoperfusion, most often the result of systemic hypotension.
