Canadian Syncope Risk Score – In case of syncope, patients are really in danger or not?

From Canada a new method to understand if syncope is dangerous arrives. It is a questionnaire which has been projected by the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and will be published on the Canadian Medical Association Journal

This questionnair represents a kind of screening test which will help GPs and ER physicians to understand if a patient who sofferes a syncope deserves to be hospitalized or not, i.e. to understand the dangerousness of a syncope.

This will probably turn out to be an efficient method to know how to treat patients and avoiding queues at the ER.
