Neurocardiogenic Syncope (NCS)


Otherwise referred to:  Neurally Mediated Syncope, Neurally Mediated Hypotension, Vasovagal Syncope

This disorder is characterized by an episodic fall in blood pressure and/or heart rate that results in fainting (Robertson, 2002). The disorder occurs intermittently, with patients sometimes reporting good health between episodes.

Our web site provides general information on NCS, and also explores its symptoms, mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment.   More information about NCS can be found here - https://www.dinet.org/info/ncs/neurocardiogenic-syncope-info-r104/   We also include links to more web resources in our Link Directory.
