Syncope in patients who have known structural heart disease or abnormal ECG is most often caused by arrhythmias.

The following investigations should be considered:

  • echocardiography in most patients
  • exercise testing is particularly informative if syncope occurs on exertion
  • 24 hour ECG monitoring

A referral to a cardiologist should also be considered.
