This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
syncope means fainting which is rare in children.
there are many different causes of fainting or syncope for children.
children can faint or have seizures and still have nomral blood pressure and heart rate or can have fast heart rate or slow heart rate or low or high blood pressure.
what may be better would be a device which could measure sudden heart rate and blood pressure changes
and also could measure motion or lack of motion and would set up an alarm if there was no motion for a few seconds.
there are some small monitors for children and infants
but they are not medical to measure blood pressure or heart rate.
there are not devices which can measure these things as blood pressure has to be monitored by a blood pressure cuff.
heart rate can be monitored by a heart lead or a finger pulse oximeter
but there is nothing commercial to buy which can do all of these things.
