Word or term in question:

despejó (en este contexto)

Context:

Se colocó ante ella, tan cerca que podía olerlo. Al ver su mirada obsesiva, Brianna se mordió el labio para no gritar, decidida a no darle esa satisfacción, pero supo que no saldría de allí con vida.
Sin previo aviso, le dio un bofetón que hizo que viera lucecitas delante de sus ojos,
—¡No te atrevas a volver a desmayarte, zorra! —le echó un cubo de agua que tenía preparado al lado y eso la despejó. Medio ahogada, comenzó a toser.

"woke her up"

My comment:

Despejar is almost like saying "clearing up". So she has fainted and he throws a bucket of water on her and this wakes her up, or "made her come to" It's the simple act of been shaken up by water thrown on her suddenly.
