In this episode, host Alyssa Watson, DVM, welcomes back Heidi Barnes Heller, DVM, DACVIM, to talk about her recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Top 5 Ways to Differentiate Syncope & Seizures.” Dr. Barnes offers an in-depth neurologic perspective on how to differentiate a fainting episode (syncope) from a proper seizure. She reviews relevant observations and examination findings. Dr. Barnes emphasizes that what happens during and after an episode is important, but the details of what happened right before the episode are most likely more useful.
