This week’s Featured Video of the Week with Dr. Julian Stewart focuses on syncope in pediatrics. Dr. Stewart is based out of New York Medical College, was trained as a pediatric cardiologist, and has been aware of syncope for a number of years. He thoroughly explains what syncope is and emphasizes that syncope “goes away”. Dr. Stewart explains that tilt-table testing is effective because it keeps one from moving their feet around, however it is important to use other tools to gain accurate testing in addition to just a tilt-table test. There are multiple forms of fainting such as neurocardiogenic syncope, orthostatic hypotension, reflex syncope and vasovagal syncope. It is important to listen to a patient’s history and the characteristics of their syncope episodes to diagnose effectively. Find out more by clicking the link below and watching the interview!
