What is the cause and treatment for venous vaga?
What can be done to prevent it
A venous vaga is vasovagal attack which is a disorder that causes a rapid drop in heart rate and blood pressure, resulting in decreased blood flow to the brain and fainting. Vasovagal attack is the most common cause of fainting. The disorder is also referred to as neurocardiogenic syncope.A vasovagal attack may occur in a person of any age, but the attacks are more common in children, young adults, and the elderly.
Even with treatment, not all vasovagal syncope episodes can be avoided. If your son feels like he might faint, he can lie down and lift his legs. This allows gravity to keep blood flowing to his brain. If he can't lie down, tell him to sit down and put his head between his knees until he feels better.
