Fainting/Conditions/Prevention

 Fainting

When you faint, your brain doesn't receive enough blood flow, causing you to lose consciousness. This loss of consciousness is usually brief.

If someone falls unconscious, it is important to take the situation seriously and contact a doctor. There can be a serious disorder that involves the heart that can cause this, so treat fainting as an emergency until the signs and symptoms are alleviated and the cause is known. If you faint more than once, talk to your doctor.

Fainting


If you feel faint

  • Lie down or sit down.To avoid fainting again, don't get up too quickly.
  • Place your head between your knees if you sit down.

If someone else faints

  • Position the person on his or her back.If the person is not injured and is breathing, raise their legs so that they are at a level slightly above their heart. If possible, loosen their belts, collars, or other constricting clothing.

    If the person does not regain consciousness after a minute, call 911 or your local emergency number.

  • Check for breathing.If someone is not breathing, begin CPR immediately. Call 911 or your local emergency number. Keep CPR going until help arrives or the person starts breathing on their own.

If someone falls and bumps their head or gets cuts, they should take care of the bruises or cuts by applying pressure and controlling the bleeding.
