In brief: Syncope

If your aunt has true syncope, there are numerous possible causes, including situational, vasovagal, neurologic, cardiac, orthostatic, endocrinologic, or medication-related.
Her doctor should take a thorough history and guided physical first, and then order an ekg. Further testing, most of which are cardiac tests, is directed by the results of this initial evaluation.
