r4tqv5svbmlfc0pgolvafep265FA  fainting Fainting refers to a brief loss of consciousness, due to decrease in blood flow to the brain.

Causes of fainting:
  • Lack of food/fluids
  • Reaction to pain
  • Exhaustion
  • Emotional stress
  • Prolonged periods of physical activity/inactivity (sitting or standing) in a warm environment

First aid response for fainting:
  • When a person feels faint, ask person to lie down.
  • Raise the person legs and support the ankles on your shoulders. This should improve the blood flow to the brain. Once the victim is fully recovered encourage victim to drink plenty of fluids.
