This article describes the pathophysiology of the condition, as well as clinical presentation and treatment, and explains why it can be easily missed. It includes a case study that describes a situation in which the condition was not considered initially as a differential diagnosis, and considers implications for practice...

In March's Emergency Nurse, the article on pre-hospital assessment of a child under one year old with fever advised the administration of glucose if children are 'very unwell or unconscious'. This should read 'check blood glucose'. We apologise for the error and any inconvenience it has caused. A corrected version is available online here .

Children who present with transient loss of consciousness (T-LOC) are often first seen in emergency departments (EDs). Reflex anoxic seizure (RAS), vasovagal syncope and prolonged respiratory apnoea are benign, syncopal events that can be generally managed by explanation and reassurance. RAS is a short, paroxysmal, self-reverting episode of asystole that is triggered by pain, fear or anxiety and is caused by increased vagal response.
