How to Treat Seizure?

Medical Treatment:
  • If you know this is their first seizure or it lasts longer than 5 minutes, call ambulance
If you are with someone having a seizure:
  • Cushion their head if they are on the ground
  • Loosen any tight clothing around their neck
  • If they are in danger place(like road, hot cooker, etc), move them
  • Turn them so they are lying on their side when their convulsions stop
  • Stay with them and speak calmly with them until they recover
  • Note the time the seizure begins and ends
  • It might be scary to witness but do not panic
  • Put the brakes on when they are in a wheelchair and leave any seatbelt or harness on. Gently support them and cushion their heads, but do not attempt to move them
  • Do not put anything in their mouth, including your fingers. Until they recover completely, they should have no food or drink
