Denson G. Fujikawa 2+ within the early Nineteen Eighties it was once well-known that over the top Ca inflow, possibly via 2+ 2+ voltage-gated Ca channels, with a resultant raise in intracellular Ca, used to be linked to neuronal dying from cerebral ischemia, hypoglycemia, and standing epilepticus (Siejo 1981). Calcium activation of phospholipases, with arachidonic acid accumulation and its oxidation, producing loose radicals, used to be regarded as a possible mechanism during which neuronal harm happens.

In children, breath-holding spells, a form of syncope (discussed later under “Miscellaneous Causes of Altered Consciousness”), can cause a transitory alteration of consciousness that may mimic epileptic seizures. Although rapid increases in ICP (which may result from intermittent hydrocephalus, severe head trauma, brain tumors, intracerebral hemorrhage, or Reye syndrome) may produce sudden loss of consciousness, affected patients frequently have other neurological manifestations that lead to this diagnosis.
In patients with valvular heart disease, the cause of syncope may be arrhythmias. Syncope also may be due to reduced cardiac output secondary to myocardial failure, to mechanical prosthetic valve malfunction, or to thrombus formation. Mitral valve prolapse generally is a benign condition, but rarely, cardiac arrhythmias can occur. The most significant arrhythmias are ventricular. In atrial myxoma or with massive pulmonary embolism, a sudden drop in left ventricular output may occur. In atrial myxoma, syncope frequently is positional and occurs when the tumor falls into the AV valve opening Episodic Impairment of Consciousness 11 during a change in position of the patient, thereby causing obstruction of the left ventricular inflow.
Rarely, micturition syncope with headache may result from a pheochromocytoma in the bladder wall. Defecation syncope is uncommon, but it probably shares the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for micturition syncope. Convulsive syncope is an episode of syncope of any cause that is sufficiently prolonged to result in a few clonic jerks; the other features typically are syncopal and should not be confused with epileptic seizures. Other causes of situational syncope include diving and the postprandial state.
