Feeling Faint

Simple faints often can be triggered by certain experiences, such as seeing blood, standing up in a hot room or skipping a meal. These kinds of faints often end spontaneously if the person's head is brought down to heart level. If someone you're with faints, put the person in a reclining position and lift his or her legs up onto a chair, say health experts at the University of Washington. When the blood returns to the head, consciousness is usually regained and the person returns to normal.
