Fainting is a condition where a person loses consciousness suddenly and temporarily, causing a fall. Apart from falling, the symptoms of fainting can be accompanied by cold sweats, nausea, loss of concentration, blurred vision and ringing in the ears. The patient's awareness will return in a short time, and after awakening the sufferer will feel confused. There are several causes that underlie fainting, including sudden drop in blood pressure, autonomic nervous system disorders, low blood sugar or hypoglycemia, dehydration, seizures, heart problems and psychological disorders. To establish the cause of fainting with certainty, blood pressure checks, blood tests, electrocardiogram (EKG), electroencephalography (EEG), echocardiography, X-rays and carotid sinus tests can be performed. If all the examination results are normal, the possible cause of fainting is a psychological disorder. It is recommended that your younger sibling consult directly with an Internal Medicine Specialist and a Mental Health Specialist so that anamnesis, physical examination, laboratory and supporting examinations can be carried out, and your younger sibling can get appropriate treatment. Handling of fainting is done according to the underlying cause.
Some things you need to do when your sister passes out at home include:
1. Lie down with your feet higher than your heart, such as on a pillow, chair or any object that can be used to prop your legs higher.
2. Loosen clothes or accessories that are too tight and binding.
3. If you do not wake up for more than 2 minutes, immediately go to the nearest Emergency Unit, in order to get fast and precise treatment.
Some tips that can be done to prevent fainting include:
1. Eat foods with balanced nutrition, multiply vegetables and fruit
2. Consume 8 glasses of water or 2 liters per day
3. Avoid sleeping late. Get enough sleep for 7-8 hours per day
4. Regular exercise at least 30 minutes per day 4-5 times a week
5. Manage stress well
6. Recognizing certain symptoms before fainting, such as dizziness, blurred vision, or cold sweats
7. Immediately lie down or sit down, if you feel you might pass out.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
