Fainting continued

  • If a patient faints during venipuncture:
  • Gently remove the tourniquet and needle from the patients arm, apply gauze and pressure to the skin puncture site.
  • Call for help.
  • If the patient is seated, place his head between his knees.
  • A cold compress on the back of the neck or ammonium salts may help to revive the patient more quickly.
