Useful tips

How to treat someone having an epileptic seizure

  • stay with person,
  • do not restrain movements of person having a seizure,
  • protect them from injury - remove harmful objects from nearby. Cushion their head. Loosen any tight clothing on person
  • aid breathing by gently placing them in the recovery position(on one side),
  • do not put anything in their mouth,
  • establish communication to know if the person has become conscious,
  • encourage the person,
  • do not give them anything to eat or drink until they are fully recovered,
  • after a convulsive attack, the person should be placed on the left side. Remember that there is less chance of vomiting after convulsions before the person has fully recovered. For this reason, persons head should be turned sideways so that the vomit can be squeezed out of the mouth without inhaling into the lungs. Stay with the person until is fully recovered,
  • call for an ambulance if seizure continues for more than 10 minutes, if person stops breathing, if a series of attacks occurs within a short period of time and if between attacks there is no regaining consciousness
