At Disability Insurance Law Group, our nationwide attorneys know Syncope is a brief loss of consciousness, also known as fainting. It can happen when blood pressure is low or due to a sudden change in blood.
There are two types of syncope:
This is the most common type of syncope. It occurs when the body overreacts to certain triggers. Treatments include lifestyle changes, such as drinking more fluids and eating more salt. Some people may need medicine or a heart pacemaker.
This is a dangerous type of syncope that is caused by an abnormal heart rhythm or structural damage to the heart.
Other types of syncope include Postural Syncope and Neurological Syncope.
Determinations of impairment due to syncope are often made by healthcare professionals, including cardiologists, neurologists, and other specialists. The evaluation may involve assessing the underlying causes of syncope through diagnostic tests such as electrocardiography (ECG), tilt table testing, and ambulatory monitoring.

When is Syncope Considered an Impairment?
Syncope is a temporary loss of consciousness due to a sudden drop in blood flow to the brain. The underlying causes of syncope can vary, and its impact on daily life depends on factors such as frequency, duration, and associated symptoms.
Syncope is considered an impairment when it significantly interferes with an individual’s ability to carry out daily activities, maintain employment, and engage in social interactions.
Here are some considerations for when syncope may be considered an impairment:
If syncope episodes significantly impair a person’s ability to perform basic activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing, bathing, and walking, it may be considered an impairment.
- Occupational Implications
Syncope can impact a person’s ability to work. Jobs involving machinery, driving, or tasks requiring sustained attention may be particularly affected. The impact on job performance, attendance, and the ability to carry out essential job functions is a crucial consideration.
Syncope episodes pose safety concerns for the affected individual and others. If there is an increased risk of accidents or injuries due to loss of consciousness, it may contribute to the severity of impairment.
- Cognitive and Emotional Impact
Syncope episodes can have cognitive and emotional consequences. Fear of syncope or the emotional impact of experiencing loss of consciousness may contribute to overall impairment.
The duration and frequency of syncope episodes are essential considerations. Chronic or frequent syncope that persists over time and significantly impairs overall functioning may be viewed as an impairment.
The effectiveness of treatment in managing syncope is considered. If syncope persists despite medical interventions, it may contribute to the severity of impairment.
