The Danger And Causes Of Falling Or Fainting

Fainting is a brief loss consciousness, often referred to as a blacking out or passing out. Falls that occur as a result of fainting spells are more common among older adults. Since many people do not remember losing consciousness prior to falling, a fall may actually be faint in disguise. A faint or fall can easily result in serious injury or disability, so if you have experienced either of these, it is important to have the right medical evaluation.

Faint and Fall Center Testimonials

Dr. Andrew Rudnick has been such salvation in my daughter’s life in this past year. Unfortunately, she suffers from P.O.T.S. and he has been working with her to try to treat her symptoms and give her some relief. She was diagnosed five years ago and he’s done more for her than two other cardiologists have been able to do from large teaching hospitals in such a short period of time. We highly recommend him, he’s kind and caring and listens to the needs of his patients which really make all of the difference!”

Alert

At Hunterdon Cardiovascular Associates (HCA) we are taking a proactive approach in safeguarding our patients to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, we urge you to call the Hunterdon Medical Center (HMC) patient hotline at 908 788-6440 or contact your primary care physician as soon as possible. In addition, we ask that, if you believe you have potentially been exposed to someone who is demonstrating symptoms, or has been diagnosed with COVID19, that you contact our office and speak with a staff member who will ask you several questions to determine whether you should be seen in our office, the emergency department or by your primary care physician.

We are scheduling patients currently utilizing the CDC, Cardiology Society and the Department of Health recommendations (sanitizing, social distancing and screening patients before they enter the practice). We are always available for your urgent questions and will continue to have a cardiologist on call 24/7.

In the coming weeks we will be offering alternative measures, such as telemedicine to continue to take care of our patients.

Again, our objective is to reduce risk in our patient population and staff members.

In the meantime, we ask that you keep yourself informed by logging on to the CDC (WEBSITE) for the latest information ensuring that you follow their recommendation in reducing the spread of coronavirus (avoiding close contact with others as much as possible).

We all must do our part to flatten the curve and stall the spread of this virus.

As information changes in our communities, the state of NJ and the CDC, we will continue to keep you informed.

Wishing all of our patients good health.
