Overview

slide

This tutorial seeks to equip the learner with the ability to distinguish the common ordinary fainting spell from the much less common extraordinary faint that may be a harbinger for a future sudden death. The spectrum of sudden death predisposing heart conditions that may present with a warning faint will be examined. Using cases, the detective-like scrutiny that needs to be applied will be illustrated. Key pearls and pitfalls with taking a personal and family history and with examining the 12-lead ECG will be provided so that you may be able to prevent those sudden deaths in the young which are preventable.  

Objectives

  • Identify the key cardiac diseases that underlie potentially lethal faints
  • Distinguish an ordinary fainting spell from an extraordinary one
  • Assess and prevent sudden deaths in the young
