Psychogenic unresponsiveness. A patient became progressively obtunded and confused, experienced eyelid flutter, became aphasic, and finally did lose the consciousness during the tilt. The patient responded to reassurance and she regained consciousness while in the upright position. All monitoring variables were normal during the spell; patient became slightly tachycardiac after the spell. Data from 37-year-old woman.
