Extremely Lightheaded And Dizzy When I Stand Up

Is there something I can do to stop from becoming uneasy, dizzy, and lightheaded around blood? I recently started at a vet clinic and I became lightheaded and dizzy when watching a vet tech put a catheter in a dog.
This: This will go away after a while. It is a very common occurrence when individuals first start working in health care. You can try to "densensitize" yourself to it; there are varying ways to do it. When you are at home, think about different situations and how you would handle it. Also give yourself something to think about while it happens, what I think about is that we are helping this patient, even though it looks like we are hurting them. If you felt light-headed or think your going to faint though, sit down immediately and put your head between your legs so you don't faint.

I get dizzy when I stand up and sometimes lightheaded with ringing in my ears. Any idea why this happens?
Probably dehydration: A common symptom of dehydration is dizziness with standing. This is because when you are dehydrated, your blood pressure tends to be low and when you stand up, the blood pressure drops as the blood in your head falls (due to gravity) down back towards your heart. As a result, this can make you feel temporarily dizzy or lightheaded, which may or may not be accompanied by ringing in the ears. ...Read more
