Caption: Recovery position. First aider placing a girl in the recovery position. This position is used (often for unconscious patients) when the patient is breathing and has a heartbeat, provided there has been no injury to the neck or back. The position (not completed here) will hold the patient stable, keeping the airways clear and allowing vomit or secretions to be safely expelled.
