The first heart sound is of variable intensity, and heart sounds related to atrial contractions may be audible. An ECG confirming the diagnosis demonstrates independence of atrial P waves and ventricular QRS complexes. During Stokes-Adams attacks, the ECG generally shows ventricular standstill, but ventricular fibrillation or tachycardia also may occur. Sinoatrial Block Sinoatrial block may result in dizziness, lightheadedness, and syncope. It is most frequent in the elderly. Palpitations are common, and the patient appears pale.
Exercise testing may be useful in detecting coronary artery disease, and exercise-related syncopal recordings may help localize the site of conduction disturbances. Consider tilt-table testing in patients with unexplained syncope in high-risk settings or with recurrent faints in the absence of heart disease (Kapoor, 1999). False positives occur, and 10% of healthy persons may faint. Tilt testing frequently employs pharmacological agents such as nitroglycerin or isoproterenol. The specificity of tilt-table testing is approximately 90%, but the sensitivity differs in different patient populations.
Nevertheless, even in these situations, appropriate laboratory documentation is important for other physicians who will see the patient in the future. In other instances, the cause of the disease will be elucidated only by the use of laboratory tests. These tests may in individual cases include hematological and biochemical blood studies; neurophysiological testing (Chapters 34–38); neuroimaging (Chapters 39–42); organ biopsy; and bacteriological and virological studies. The use of laboratory tests in the diagnosis of neurological diseases is considered more fully in Chapter 33.
