The syncope vagale is a fainding, a brutal, fast and complete loss of consciousness. This phenomenon is the result of a sudden deficit of Oxygène on the level of the Cerveau. Also called vasovagale, it is the most common syncope.
After a few seconds, the patient ends up regaining consciousness sometimes helped by people who lavish a stimulation to him.
Generally the patient who made a syncope vagale does not remember nothing or only of some symptoms which have occurred immediately before the syncope.
If the syncope is prolonged, the patient is likely to make a crisis of generalized convulsions.
The syncope must be differentiated from the Lipothymie which is a faintness benign being accompanied by Vertige S whereas the heart and the lungs continue to function normally.
Normally, the system vagal (parasympathetic Nervous system) has the capacity to slow down the Cardiac rhythm. On its side, the Nervous system sympathetic nerve accelerates the cardiac rhythm. In the event of rupture of balance between the two systems, with hypertonicity vagale, a syncope is likely to occur. This one is more frequently seen at a young individual presenting some Anxiété, or following intense emotion S or sometimes of violent Douleur S.
The syncopes vagales are particularly spectacular, but do not present a danger to the patient nor always do not require specific treatment. In certain cases where the syncope is prolonged, the installation of a cardiac pacemaker can be advised.
