Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
I was about to say it would be helpful if it were explained why we need to time it, but I see a helpful sort has added this in. Well done, helpful sort.
May I also add, from being told previously by a seizure-prone person - no one is going to swallow their own tongue. That is not a thing. However, they may choke, suffocate, or otherwise suffer lacerations from you trying to shove something into their mouth to keep them from doing this impossible thing. On no account do this.
This is super important! I had someone seizure during one of my panels (no it was not our fault, there was no slideshow at this point, just us talking) and we were lucky enough to have a few people with medical knowledge around. Memorize these steps, please.
despite this regarding very specific situations, whenever posts like these come along i always want to mention that a thing i learned in a training thing for my camp counselor job was that if someone’s having a seizure in a pool/pond/body of water, just move things out of the way and hold their head up above the water. if you’re gonna have a seizure, in the water is actually basically the best place to do it because there’s no, like, floor for you to bang yourself on (as long as your head’s being held up. no drowning allowed).
Each year we spend billions of dollars subsidizing profits at large international corporations because they refuse to pay their workers a living wage. It is not fair that taxpayers are footing the bill because these companies’ full-time workers are paid poverty wages and require public assistance just to be able to afford their rent and feed their families.
If these corporations won’t take action, then we will fight for their workers. Click here to tell Congress to raise the minimum wage: http://afsc.me/1nJkgBK
Bottom line: If you don’t think gigantic fast-food chains should have to pay their employees fairly, then you’re happy footing the bill for them.
But tell that to a conservative…..
my favorite part of ATLA is that the main antagonist’s 14 year old daughter was more frightening then he was
