If someone collapses, it can be a sign of a medical emergency. Here are the steps to take when someone collapses:

Assess the Situation: Quickly assess the environment to ensure your safety and the safety of others. Look for any immediate dangers or hazards that may need to be addressed before providing assistance.

Check for Responsiveness: Approach the person and gently tap their shoulder while asking loudly, “Are you okay?” If there is no response, proceed to the next steps.

Call for Emergency Help: Dial the emergency services in your country (e.g., 911 in the United States) or ask someone nearby to make the call. Provide clear information about the situation and the location.

Check for Breathing: Place your ear near the person’s mouth and nose to listen and feel for breathing. Look for chest movements and signs of normal breathing. If the person is not breathing or only gasping, you will need to perform CPR.

Start CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation): Begin chest compressions immediately if the person is not breathing or has no pulse. Place the heel of one hand on the center of the person’s chest, between the nipples. Place your other hand on top and interlock your fingers. Position yourself directly over the person’s chest and perform compressions at a rate of about 100-120 compressions per minute. Allow the chest to fully recoil between compressions. If you are trained in CPR, you can also provide rescue breaths following the compression cycles.

Use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) if Available: If an AED is nearby, follow the instructions provided with the device. Apply the pads to the person’s chest as directed and follow the prompts for analyzing the person’s heart rhythm and delivering a shock if advised.

Continue CPR until Help Arrives: Continue performing CPR until medical professionals arrive and take over or until the person shows signs of regaining consciousness.
