Medical - Medical (general) / medical report - patient with multiple myeloma
French term or phrase: avec notion de perte de contact
Hello colleagues,

This regards a patient who has multiple myeloma and who suffered a mechanical fall at home, "sans perte de connaissance ni traumatisme crânien."

"Depuis la chute, la patiente présente à nouveau des douleurs dorsales et du bassin, progressivement croissantes, avec notion de perte de contact brève. Pas de récidive de l'épisode."

Loss of contact? Between the surfaces of the joints? So might this be:

"with possible brief loss of contact" ?? or "possibly with brief loss of contact." ?? I'm not familiar with this concept. Would anyone be able to weigh in?

Thank you!

Fainting, "blacking out," or syncope is the temporary loss of consciousness followed by the return to full wakefulness. ... For fainting or syncope to occur, either the reticular activating system loses its blood supply, or both hemispheres of the brain are deprived of blood, oxygen, or glucose.
