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.
Yes, it’s rather rare to see correct information about responding to someone having a seizure. My sister was prone to them growing up, and throughout high school I was a part of a medical response team which involved responding to at least 5 seizures a years. The main thing I would tech new trainees is that there is so little you can do until the seizure has stopped. Mainly make sure there is nothing they can hit themselves on, trying to hold them down or move them is more risk to you getting hurt than them. Once the seizure is over, put them in the recovery position, make them comfortable, and etc. But yey correct medical facts go you tumblr.

Fun fact: the blending of idioms or cliches is called a malaphor.
My personal favorite is “We’ll burn that bridge when we get to it.”
I looked it up b/c that was a very familiar idiom and how could it be wrong but then
yeah wow that’s spot on perfect
"Um, yeah, of course these leeks are organic"
"Of course my quaint little cottage in this gentrified neighborhood is built with fair trade wood"
"Crimson nirnroot? Of course you haven’t heard of it”
"Why would I have a funeral for that dead body in the background? The funeral industry of Skyrim is commercialized and insincere, her body will decay and return to Nirn just as nature intended"
I FOUND IT OMG
That time Peter Parker was trained by Natasha Romanoff.

Don’t you love how Peter can do it with his calves but Natasha has to use her inner thighs. This whole equality thing is great.
Thighs are stronger than calves, and you can get a tighter grip, as well as have a higher chance of breaking things. Peter was intending to disarm, Natasha was ready to kill. Natasha is a trained assassin, and Peter is a student who works for a newspaper.
Given their backgrounds and experiences, it would be UNequal to have Peter using skills and disarming tactics that Natasha was trained to do so.
So yes, this whole equality thing is great.
This post is brilliant.
also peter has bALLS OK you dont want to SLAM YOUR FUCKING TESTICLES into someons fucking SKULL
