2. Make sure there isn’t a crowd to hinder free flow of air. Then loosen belts, collars or other constrictive clothing and check the person’s airway to be sure it’s clear by making the victim lie flat on his/her back and raise both legs into a 45 degree position.

3. To reduce the chance of fainting again, don’t get the person up too quickly once they regain consciousness. Don’t give the victim water to drink immediately but instead sprinkle the water on forehead and back if the neck before they ingest any liquid.

4. If the person doesn’t regain consciousness within one minute, call an ambulance or your local emergency number but keep placing the legs in the 45 degree position as this angle enable free flow of oxygen best through the lungs where it’s needed most.
