Easy Life Saving: Side Position (Recovery Position)

People suffering loss or reduction of consciousness are in great danger. Protective mechanisms of human body are insufficiant, especially swallowing, coughing and retching.

The danger of choking on fluids, vomit or the tongue exists, if the person is in supine position.

Despite the great danger, life saving is quite simple: Apply the side position to every breathing person, who does not react totally normal.
