“If the legs of someone who’s immobilized in a harness are relaxed, the first signs of discomfort and shock can begin in as little as three minutes, with an average onset between five to 20 minutes. Fainting generally soon follows the onset of pre-syncopal symptoms. When fainting occurs, the natural response is to move to a horizontal position with a return of circulation. If fainting occurs in a forced upright position, death can occur within minutes. Another complication that can hasten death is the loss of a patent airway when the head flexes forward.” -William Raynovich, NREMT-P, EdD, associate professor of EMS for Creighton University, Omaha, Neb.
