Abstract: 

The Step2CK Test Prep Series was created by fourth-year students at the Texas Tech School of Medicine in Lubbock as a project of the fourth-year geriatrics rotation. It was developed as part of the Reynolds Geriatrics Podcast series, which is supported in part by an Aging and Quality of Life grant from the D.W. Reynolds Foundation. The episodes in this series are based on questions that have geriatrics content and patient vignettes from the 2009 Step2CK Sample Exam. For more information on the series, go to http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/fammed/ttmedcast/gerseri....

Educational objectives: 

This episode is based on Question 65 of the 2009 Step2CK Sample Exam. Learning Objectives: the third-year medical student studying for the Step2CK exam should be able to:

  • define syncope
  • list cardiac and noncardiac causes of syncope
  • given a patient's history and work-up, be able to determine the likely diagnosis for the cause of the patient's syncope
