Falls among older adults are a major health problem. When older adults fall, it is difficult to determine whether it is just a simple fall or is caused by syncope, as people often have amnesia for the loss of consciousness. We report three cases in which cardiac monitoring, for seven days or more, showed that falls had been caused by cardiac-related syncopes.
