Purple Day Fact Four

First Aid procedures have changed over time. When you see someone having a Tonic-Clonic seizure (formerly knows as grand-mal and what is most frequently depicted as a typical seizure) DO NOT put anything in the person’s mouth. They won’t swallow their tongue but they are also not in control of their biting. For the most part, do nothing but time the seizure, call for help if necessary, clear the area of objects the person could hurt themselves on.

This is why it matters to me:
