Reviving A Person Who Fainted

A good splash might revive her, but you also run a risk that the victim will inhale the water and choke on it. Instead, place the patient on the floor face up with her feet slightly elevated, to aid circulation to the brain. Then gently bathe her face with cool water. This will help comfort her and relieve any nausea she might have from fainting. If she does not regain consciousness and appear awake and alert within a few minutes, seek medical attention.
