Fainting, the sudden and often unpredictable loss of consciousness, can be a frightening experience. While often benign, fainting can sometimes be the sign of serious illness. Recurrent fainting can significantly disrupt a person’s life, and make them prone to injury and, on occasion, death.

The Fainting Phenomenon, Second Edition is a valuable information resource for anyone whose life is affected by fainting.

Written for the layperson, this book will help you:


  • Understand the different reasons why people faint and their significance
  • Seek proper medical attention and treatment
  • Deal with related conditions such as Postural Tachycardia Syndrome and Orthostatic Hypertension


This is an indispensable and reassuring guide for parents, families and care givers.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book would be a very useful introductory text for medical students and nurses to read … .A useful size and covers theory to an appropriate depth." (Cardiology News, October - November 2007)

Review of edition 1:

This book is packed with information in ‘layman’s terms’ – @we ordinary (non-medical) people’ can then start to understand different types of faints that are being experienced or witnessed. The book can get very technical in parts, but not overly, regarding the heart, brain and systems. The Fainting Phenomenon book by Blair Grub should be in every surgery in the UK, it is a must that every Dr should have to hand. This is also a very good book for anyone who faints, be they patient, parents or carers, it will set them off on the road to ask the right questions with medical people to obtain a diagnosis for faints to put people (old or young) who suffer from this phenomenon at ease.
It is a must read and should be a best seller in every UK surgery and hospital!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Information November 7, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after I had fainted several times and was scheduled for a tilt table test. It is a good book written by an expert that my own doctor recognized, and it helped me understand the test results and diagnosis. Concise and easy to read, it is a valuable resource for anyone who lives with vasovagal syncope.

5.0 out of 5 stars The author is my doctor December 17, 2009
Format:Paperback
Dr Grubb is one of my doctors, and he is the leader in his field. He gave me this book after my first visit, and it has been a very helpful resource. Not only is he knowledgable about fainting and it's causes, he can explain the conditions without the crutch of medical jargon. If you have dysautonomia, or any other related condition, pick up this book!
