Reflex syncope (neurally-mediated syncope)
Reflex syncope is a neurally-mediated transient loss of consciousness that occurs when the body inappropriately reacts to triggers such as intense emotion, pain, or trauma, sudden postural changes, or others. Vasovagal syncope is the most common form. Triggering of the cardiovascular reflexes produces vasodilation or bradycardia, with a resultant fall in blood pressure and cerebral perfusion.
