Loss of consciousness is one of the most common side effects of suspension and can be very dangerous. In responsible suspension, a person should not be suspended unless they are completely lucid. While hanging, if the person faints, they should be lowered quickly (but not necessarily unhooked). Once the person regains consciousness, administering water and sugar in a liquid form will help to raise glucose levels in the blood, and they can decide if they’d like to give it another try.
