Unresponsiveness can last for a few seconds (e.g. fainting), or
for a long time. If someone is unresponsive, this is often
brought on by serious illness or injury like a head injury or by
taking alcohol or other drugs.
If they're unable to respond to noise or body contact, it’s
likely they’re unresponsive.
