Unconsciousness: Unless there is a witness to the loss of consciousness, then the evaluation of unexplained loss of conscious is the same -- to R/O potential etiologies - cardiac and neurological. In general, syncope is caused by cardiac events in 80% of the time, neurological events in 10% of the time and 10% is unknown. Need to see your physician for the evaluation.
