Syncope is a common but concerning event in athletic patients. As such, efforts must be made to distinguish presyncope from syncope with a critical distinction of syncope during exercise and postexercise syncope. Syncope most often occurs just after exercise and is usually benign; however, syncope during exercise may be a sign of pathologic structural or electrical cardiac issues. Solving this diagnostic puzzle mandates a detailed history and examination frequently augmented with diagnostic testing and imaging studies. Recommendations for treatment and potential restriction from activity also present challenging decisions to the health care provider.
