In brief: Call 911
A tet spell is life threatening and should be treated emergently.
It is similar to a muscle spasm, but results in a severe blockage of flow through the heart. While waiting for help to arrive, placing the child's knees together up against the chest may help blood flow back to the heart and through the area of muscle spasm.

Whenever your child is turning blue you need to call 911 immediately regardless of the cause.
