Fainting

Fainting isn't always as dramatic as shown in movies but it can happen pretty fast. Do you know what to do when someone faints?

1. Always follow the DRSABCD action plan

2. Loosen any tight clothing

3. Ensure plenty of fresh air (open a window if possible) and get people to give the casualty some space

4. When casualty is conscious, lie on back and raise and support legs.

5. Treat any injury resulting from a fall.‚Äč
