Note: Don't give anything to a fainted patient to avoid tripping the patient or liquid into the lungs, which is even more troublesome.

How to dispose of patients with collapse: Some patients suddenly show nausea, dizziness, pale, shallow breathing, general weakness, often suddenly fell to the ground, this is the performance of collapse.
