Condition White: Completely Relaxed
Heart rate between 65 to 75 BPM and only 5% awareness. In condition white, you are relaxed and unaware of what is going on around you. Examples of this include when we are asleep or in some other environment that we assume to be safe, often dropping our guard. For example, walking down the street whilst distracted by your mobile phone. You are also exposed when drunk or on drugs. We think it is better to be alert in most situations and not be ambushed by a scare or the environment.
We teach our students that even on a night out you don’t let yourself slip into “level white” because if you are attacked while in this condition, you won’t see it coming and may end up becoming another “one punch kills” statistic! Here at FAAE, we recommend that you always stay alert and keep an eye on things even when treating a patient.
