Did You Know?
Loss of consciousness
Loss of consciousness – or the layman’s term fainting – happens when there is poor blood and oxygen delivery to the brain, causing it to temporarily shut down. This can be due to a fall, head trauma, or even drastic changes in temperature. Fainting can be one-time thing or could be a sign of an underlying medical condition. If you notice that your fainting spells occur often or in response to a particular activity, be sure to discuss it with your doctor.
