Abstract
Syncope is a very common symptom that occurs in all age groups, especially in adolescents and elderly people. The cause of syncope is very diverse, and patients with syncope visit various medical departments such as general medicine, cardiology, neurology, and emergency medicine. If we do not perform appropriate diagnostic tests based on detailed history of syncope, we may have some difficulty to identify the cause of syncope. Failure to identify the cause of syncope can lead to physical trauma due to recurrence of syncope or may increase the risk of cardiovascular events in the future. However, there is no Korean guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of syncope yet. Considering these circumstances in Korea, we prepared writing and publishing committee for evaluation and management guidelines of syncope in the Korean Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology (KSHNE) under the Korean Heart Rhythm Society (KHRS). In this guideline, we reviewed the Korean published literatures and European / American guidelines on syncope.
