Özet

Neurocardiogenic syncope is a common disorder, which is considered as a benign condition. However, sudden loss of conscience and muscle tone causes anxiety among the family members due to its similarity to sudden death. Autonomic nervous system dysregulation is thought to be responsible in the aetiology. Heart rate variability is used for assessment of autonomic nervous system.
