Abstract

INTRODUCTION - Vasovagal syncope is one of the most common causes of complete or partial loss of consciousness, causing harm to drivers or innocent bystanders. CASE REPORT - In our case, we report the case of a 60-year-old man who was admitted to hospital after a serious motor vehicle accident due to loss of consciousness. The process and results of complete cardiologic and neurological assessment are presented. The case report illustrates the importance of recognition of patients with a high risk for incapacitating symptoms due to vasodepressor type vasovagal syncope as well as the use of head-up tilt-table test to determine the diagnosis and also to guide combined management. CONCLUSION - As transient loss of consciousness during driving may cause potentially fatal accident, it has to be taken into consideration during decision making when issuing driving license for patients with vasovagal syncope.
