What should you do if someone has a seizure! (A must read, this can happen to a patient in the pharmacy line or waiting area)

1) Guide the person on the floor, make sure he/she does not hit head and avoid being around furniture or any hazards
2) Put a cushion or jacket under their head, to avoid head injury while having a seizure on the floor
3) Roll the person onto their side, to avoid them to choke on their own vomit
4) Watch them carefully and keep calm, try to figure the length of time he/she had a seizure because paramedics would ask you how long it lasted
Call 911 if seizure lasts up to 5 minutes or more!

Do not restrain them, after seizure some will seem confused be a friend and explain calmly

NOTE: Do not try putting anything in the victim's mouth, he or she may choke or may bite you they can even injure their teeth. People tend to believe to put something in their mouth to avoid them swallowing their tongue which is false, it is impossible to swallow tongue but it is possible a tongue can fall back into the throat leading to airway blockage.

What to do after a heart attack!

1) Call 911
2) Take an Aspirin: (to prevent cardiac tissue death) Most heart attacks develop when a cholesterol-laden plaque in a coronary artery ruptures. Relatively small plaques, which produce only partial blockages, are the ones most likely to rupture. When they do, they attract platelets to their surface. Platelets are the tiny blood cells that trigger blood clotting. A clot, or thrombus, builds up on the ruptured plaque. As the clot grows, it blocks the artery. If the blockage is complete, it deprives a portion of the heart muscle of oxygen. As a result, muscle cells die — and it’s a heart attack. So aspirin helps thin the blood.
3) Sit down and relax, stay calm

Note: Aspirin can be used to prevent blood clots. Did you know taking aspirin daily can reduce the chances of a heart attack and stroke for high risk patients.
