If you see a person faint:
- Do a scene survey by checking for hazards.
- Have a bystander call for medical help as soon as you recognize the unresponsiveness of the victim.
- Do a secondary survey if necessary and provide CPR and first aid if applicable.
- Turn the patient into the recovery position if injuries allow you to do so.
- Loosen any tight fighting clothing around the neck, chest, and waist to allow for a good supply of fresh air.
- Treat for shock and keep the victim as comfortable as possible until he or she returns to consciousness.
- When the victim returns to consciousness, keep them lying down for 10 to 15 minutes if possible.
