Abstract

Despite decades of research, there continues to be uncertainty about how best to risk stratify and evaluate patients who present to an ED with syncope. Existing risk-stratification tools, including the SFSR, are not ready for routine clinical use, but they do provide important lessons. We suggest nine principles for future risk stratification research and are hopeful that increasing international interest and collaboration on this topic will result in novel and improved algorithms of care.
