Can Bradycardia Cause Syncope
Slow heart rate is a symptom in which a person's heart rate (the number of heart contractions per minute) is less than normal for the average person of the same size, doing the same activities. For adults, slow heart rate usually means a rate below 50-60 beats per ...Read more
Is there a long-term (30-day) version of an EEG that can see if someone has seizures? I've had mild to severe episodes of near-syncope, with occasional bradycardia/sensations of pauses, followed by shaking. So far nothing has really explained it.
My impressions: The most useful EEG is a 3 day ambulatory study, or a 72 hr test. An inpatient monitoring ward stay can go for 48-72 hrs, and might be a useful approach. Your description does not sound like epilepsy, but more like either syncopal tendencies or even panic attacks. Maybe get opinion of a local psychiatrist and neurologist before further testing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends: Bradycardia indicates that the heart rate is too slow (< 60 BPM in adults). It may be associated with a normal electrical impulse (such as sinus bradycardia in a well-trained athlete or during sleep) or an arrhythmia (abnormal electrical impulse). Some of the more common abnormal rhythms associated with bradycardia include atrioventricular block, sick sinus syndrome, and junctional rhythm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Medication: A slow heart rate can be normal in fit individuals at rest. Many medications, notably beta blockers, slow the heart rate. A slow heart rate can also be due to disease of the av node, which conducts impulses from the atria to the ventricles. This can be due to scarring from heart attack or aging, and is seen in some infections such as lyme disease and chagas disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bradycardia: This depends upon the age of the patient -child vs adult, and health status of the patient. Generally speaking, the most common causes of bradycardia are issues with the conducting system in the heart caused by heart disease and aging, medications causing bradycardia, and certain medical conditions distinct from heart disease can produce this as well. ...Read more
