Recovery position. Artwork illustrating a woman lying in the recovery position. This position should be used when a patient is unconscious but breathing. The woman has one arm underneath her, and the other outstretched for support. One leg is also bent in front of her for support. Her head is on its side to allow unrestricted breathing. Unconscious people with suspected neck or spinal injuries should not be moved at all. Medical attention should always be sought, but the patient should not be left alone.
