Objective To analyze the clinical characteristics of emergency syncope patients and explore the strategies in their clinical treatment.
Methods Eighty-five patients with emergency syncope admitted to our hospital from January 2019 to April 2021 were reviewed. The clinical data of all patients were retrospectively analyzed. The common causes were analyzed and summarized, and the strategies in clinical treatment were proposed.
Results The main causes of syncope are neuroreflex syncope, follow by cardiac syncope, cerebral syncope, orthostatic hypotension syncope, hysterical syncope and unexplained syncope. They accounted for 35.3%, 30.6%, 15.3%, 12.9%, 3.5%, and 2.4%, respectively. Conclusion Emergency department physicians should evaluate emergency syncope patients in time, identify patients as soon as possible, confirm the etiological diagnosis, and give reasonable and effective symptomatic treatment and treatment measures in order to improve the prognosis and ensure the life safety and quality of patients.
