Disease prevention and treatment

NDDC Boss fainted during probing, this is the possible cause of the fainting(opinion)

This article is only my suggestion on what would have been the possible cause of the emergency:

This fainting may have been triggered by a number of factors, such as:

•Fear or other emotional trauma

•Severe pain

•A sudden drop in blood pressure

•Hyperventilation

•Dehydration

•Physical exertion in hot temperatures

•Coughing too hard

•Straining during a bowel movement

•Consuming drugs or alcohol

•Seizures

Medications that can cause your blood pressure to drop also increase your chance of fainting. These include certain medications used to treat:

•High blood pressures

•Allergies

•Depression

•Anxiety

If turning your head to one side causes you to faint, it’s possible that the sensors in the blood vessel in your neck are extra sensitive. This sensitivity can cause you to faint.

You’re also more likely to faint if you have any of these conditions:

•Diabetes

•Heart diseases

•Atherosclerosis

•An irregular heartbeat, or Arrhythmia

•Anxiety or panic attack

•Chronic Lung diseases

Any of these may have possibly caused the fainting. Kudos to the crude First aid measure used during the emergency.
