OT Way Way Why do they lift someone's head when he is injured?

OT On tv friends always lift someone's head when he is shot or injured, even when he's near death. Shouldn't his head be down at the floor, and his feet lifted, in most cases so he gets blood to his brain, etc.

You should not move any part of an injured person unless you have a reason to. As for the head it is possible that they might be having a breathing problem and that lifting the head could relieve it.

I believe that tipping the head back is park of the CPR process.

Yep. but there are some considerations for that if there is an indication of a neck injury.

For the same reason they remove the rear view mirrors in car scenes. it makes for a better shot. Who wants to see a camera shot of the underside of the stars chin.

Because it's TV. Anytime you see something on TV that you have any specialized knowledge about, you'll notice that they get it wrong. This is why you trust them to tell you who to vote for....

It's for the photography, so you can see the face. It is always for the photography that they do stuff on TV and film. TV isn't real life!
