    Quite a few times. I've been knocked out playing rugby and football. I passed out after a cycling workout and have twice passed out in the street, once outside Buck House. Coppers had to call an ambulance for me

      Yep, caused by a medical accident that took 24 hours to be discovered.
      Was the lung-related explosion?!

      I blacked out after landing on my head when playing football, I lost my footing when crossing a ball and landed flat on the back of my head. I was out for a few seconds and was a bit of a vegetable afterwards, I slept for about 2 days afterwards which suggests it was a concussion. I spoke to a doctor friend about it a little while ago and they were generally appalled that I didn't seek any medical advice considering the situation and what caused it.

      The game, of course, carried on around me!

      What is the difference between blacking out and passing out?

      Answer: Blacking out is a loss of memory - not being able to remember what happened because your brain has lost the ability to form new memories due to intoxication. Passing out is losing consciousness and not being able to be awakened.
      Blackout is not a formal medical term, but colloquially it is used to describe a temporary loss of consciousness.

      Some sources:

      NICE (massive clinical guidance organisation): https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg1...ial-assessment
      Harvard Medical School: https://www.health.harvard.edu/press...-it-in-the-bud

      Yep.

      I had a collapsed lung (spontaneous tension pneumothorax) which they tried to fix by aspirating it, only to cause a full haemothorax which sent my blood pressure all over the place.

      Took 24 hours to find out what they'd done, during which my BP was out of whack enough that going from laying down to sitting up was enough to put me out for quite a few counts.

      You were concussed and not able to think straight it was the other people that should have got some medical help for you.

      I got knocked out at secondary school and they made sure I stayed in overnight despite my insistance I was going to go home. There is always the chance with a head trauma that it could go pear shaped very quickly. I wasnt really myself for a couple of days after.

      Has your employer given you sufficient training to handle a screwdriver?

      Only once.

      I got kicked in the knee by a horse in the parade ring at Bath racecourse. Bust my knee cap. I think it was the shock rather than the pain, although it did smart a little.

      On the train to the Amex. Had suffered from a particularly bad gutrot the previous couple of days, so hadnít eaten anything. Felt myself feeling a bit sleepy as we left Lewes, next thing was lying on the train floor. Happened again 2 mins later. Only time Iíve had one of those double-sized mars bars at the ground to sort out my blood/sugar.
