Syncope is a clinical picture that can affect all age groups and has an important place in admissions to the emergency
department. There is an important diagnostic challenge in cases where there are different clinical presentations and patients cannot
express the situation clearly. Although the emergency department facilities for the diagnosis of syncope are limited, the diagnosis of
many patients can be differentiated from life-threatening conditions with a detailed history and physical examination. High-risk
patients should be identified and directed for definitive treatment by emergency medicine physicians. This review contains information
about the management of the syncope patient in the emergency department.
