This month’s Podcast of the Month is from PEM ED Podcast.

In a 2 x 45 minute series Andrew Sloas and Buck Kyle discuss paediatric syncope, with a focus on the cardiogenic causes that you don’t want to miss. They also cover common reasons why kids pass out, and throw in a little ECG revision too.

Do all children with congenital hearing loss need an ECG?

If you only get pre-excited about one podcast this month, make it this one.

There are two main groups – reflex and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (or autonomic failure). In this post, we will discuss reflex syncope.
