STARS Patient Information

The Medical Advisory Committee of STARS have helped to prepare valuable information for patients with syncope, PoTS, and reflex anoxic seizures.  


There are many different causes of syncope, some common and some rare. Most cases of syncope are due to the common faint. Fainting is caused by a short-term reduction in blood pressure to your brain.


Diagnosing the underlying causes of syncope can be a challenge. The process of diagnosing the causes of your faint and other symptoms should always start with a thorough medical history.


Treatment options available for syncope and ways to manage your condition.
