Answer

Cardiac arrhythmic syncope is treated with antiarrhythmic drugs or pacemaker placement. Consider cardiologist evaluation or inpatient management, in that this is more commonly associated with poor outcomes. [2] Trials assessing beta-blockade to prevent syncope have conflicting results, [40] but no clear effect has been demonstrated.
