Clinical decision making can be challenging regarding the emergency department (ED) management of patients with recent syncope. Several models of the syncope management unit are summarized in this article. Assessment of patients with recent syncope in a specialized evaluation unit, such as an emergency department-based syncope management unit, holds great promise in terms of reducing hospital admissions, reducing costs and improving outcomes for patients with syncope.
