vasovagal syncope
« on: January 26, 2024, 07:59:18 pm »
Never heard of it until today. Couple of weeks ago I had the lurgy, almost shifted it.

Yesterday, due to a fall previous day, I had to take mum to hospital (A&E) where she was expected (been to our local minor injuries).

Anyhow, whilst there, apparently my blood pressure decided mum was getting too much attention and almost splat! (I got to a.chair then help came!)

We came home today, i was given all clear and told I suffered above.

Has anyone ever experienced this vasovagal syncope?
Halter train the cattle to keep them quiet but watch your back when they come a'bulling! Give them all names even those you plan to eat. Always be calm. Most importantly, invest in wellies with steel toe caps and be prepared for the clever cow who knows where the toe caps end!!

It's just medical speak for a faint.

Yes I know but it's not as if I've never had stress etc before, hell, aside from the adrenalin rush of lambing/calving times when you have to be constantly alert, I've had the pleasure of an epileptic dog that specialised in clusters, that's stress!

I'm not sure what you want to know then.

It's a little more than that!

It occurs when you faint because your body overreacts to certain triggers, such as the sight of blood or extreme emotional distress. It may also be called neurocardiogenic syncope. The vasovagal syncope trigger causes your heart rate and blood pressure to drop suddenly.
Syncope means fainting but the vasovagal bit explains what type it is
There are four main types of fainting -  reflex mediated, cardiac, orthostatic, and cerebrovascular.
A cardiac cause of syncope is associated with significantly higher rates of morbidity and mortality than other causes.
