For centuries, the medical term for fainting was lipothymia.
After 30 minutes, the patient experienced an episode of lipothymia associated with bradycardia, a heart rate of 35 per minute and blood pressure of 80/40.
Symptoms were mainly cardiologic, with atypical chest pain, dyspnea (New York Heart Association [NYHA] class 3-4), syncope, lipothymia, and fatigue (online Appendix Table).
