How can you prevent someone from fainting?

How can you prevent someone from fainting?

Get their attention!: Speak directly, loud and clear, placing yourself in front of them, demand that they look into your eyes! have them breathe slow and deep while looking at you. You may have to demonstrate this for them; it may help to have a hand or two on their shoulders. The object is to get them grounded in the present moment.

Lastly, there is a new finger stick test for sjogren's which will help make diagnosis much earlier than traditional blood testing called sjo made by nicox. Only a few offices currently offer it at the moment, though. ...Read more
