2. Take Fainting to Heart

There is no such thing as a simple faint - there is always an explanation.

Fainting, or syncope, is temporary loss of consciousness caused by a decrease in blood flow to the brain. 50% of the population will faint at least once in their lifetime and most are unaware that fainting could be a warning sign for a serious, potentially life-threatening heart condition. 

In many cases, fainting is the only sign of an abnormal heart rhythm which is a leading cause of sudden cardiac arrest – a devastating condition that kills 100,000 people in the UK alone each year.
