Squeeze the roots of your nail firmly.
With your right thumb and index finger, put pressure on the top part of your left hands’ fingers by squeezing the roots of nails. Start with your thumb and hold for 3-5 seconds. After that, proceed to other fingers and repeat the same.
After you remove the pressure, blood should come rushing back in no more than 2 seconds. If it does, your body has sufficient blood flow. Your fingers are closely connected to your internal organs and if the above test was painful for you, there might be something wrong.
