By participating in this study, we can use the information you provide through surveys and wearable devices to determine your risk profile. Our app will provide a personal dashboard outlining your risks that you can share with your doctors and make decisions regarding further tests and even hospitalization.
Fainting is also called “syncope” by medical professionals. It is a brief loss of consciousness with a return to one’s normal self without medical intervention. It is different from passing out from a head injury (concussion) or intoxication (passing out from too much alcohol or drugs).
Fainting is common. If you have fainted, you are not alone. 1 in 4 people will faint during their lifetime and half of these people will have more than 1 episode. It is a dramatic and scary symptom. People who faint often appear like they are dead but they wake up. As a result, many people end up in the emergency departments, often by ambulance.
Occasionally the reasons for fainting can be serious especially when they are related to the heart. Thankfully bad outcomes rarely occur and usually, people at risk can be predicted.
