Syncope is defined as a transient loss of consciousness due to cerebral hypoperfusion with spontaneous return to baseline function without intervention. It is a common chief complaint of patients presenting to the emergency department. The differential diagnosis for syncope is broad, and the management varies significantly depending on the underlying etiology. A thorough history and certain physical exam findings can assist in evaluating for life-threatening diagnoses. Risk-stratifying patients into low, moderate, and high-risk groups can assist in medical decision-making and help determine the patient’s disposition. Advancements in ambulatory monitoring have made it possible to obtain prolonged cardiac evaluations of patients in the outpatient setting. This talk will focus on the diagnosis and management of the various types of syncope.

The amount of information available in the form of clinical trials and cohort studies is overwhelming, especially for primary care clinicians. Moreover, practice guidelines do not always reflect what is feasible or even best practice in specific clinical settings. This session will highlight some of the strongest research and guidelines that may alter clinical practice, with a focus on literature published in the past year. Every participant should take away several practical points that help them provide better patient care. The session will have an interactive component, which will allow for different perspectives and collective wisdom to make the best use of current evidence.

One in fifty people in the U.S. has an unruptured brain aneurysm, and 30,000 of them rupture every year. Despite low frequency, brain aneurysms are high in mortality, because the lack of a timely diagnosis often leads to death. Complicating matters more, many of the symptoms are associated with other less dangerous conditions such as influenza or stress. This session will focus on the importance of early detection via proper diagnosis and scanning, and the faculty will discuss treatment options for participants to recognize or use in practice.
