Basic Strategies for Seizures

Strategies for Seizures Header

Basic Strategies for Seizures

Seizures are one of the most common medical occurrences, affecting an estimated 1 out of every 10 people. For this reason, it is important for everyone to know some basic strategies for seizures. There are several different types of seizures, some of which may call for specific actions. However, the following do’s and don’ts can provide basic help and care in almost every situation.

  • Stay Calm
    • Remember most seizures are a common medical occurrence and only last for a few minutes. Your response to the seizure can affect the way others react. Talking calmly to the person can help during and after the seizure.
  • Pay Attention
    • Time the length of the seizure, as well as how long it takes the person to recover. Also observe any actions or symptoms during the seizure that could be helpful to medical personnel.
  • Keep the Person Safe
    • Remove sharp objects or furniture that could injure the person during the seizure.
  • Monitor the Person’s Breathing
    • Check to make sure the person is breathing properly. If the person is lying down, gently turn him/her on his or her side to help prevent saliva from blocking the airway.
  • Stay With the Person
    • Although common, seizures can still be unpredictable. Injuries or emergencies can occur during or after a seizure. It is important to stay with the person until he/she isfully recovered from the seizure or until emergency assistance arrives.
  • Be Sensitive and Supportive
    • People experiencingseizures may feel confused or embarrassed. Reassure them they are safe. When they have fully recovered, explain calmly what happened, and stay with them until they are ready to resume normal activity. If that is not possible, offer to call someone to come and stay with them.
  • Call Emergency Personnel if Needed
    • Call for an ambulance if the seizure lasts for longer than five minutes or if the person is choking or having trouble breathing. Medical assistance should also be called if the seizure occurs in water or if an injury occurs during the seizure.

 

Seizure Emergency

Do Not:

  • Forcibly Hold the Person Down
    • Holding a person down will not stop a seizure and may lead to an injury or cause the person to become agitated.
  • Put Objects in the Person’s Mouth
    • Contrary to popular belief, people will not swallow their tongues during a seizure. Putting an object in the mouth may causechoking or cause damage to the teeth.
  • Give the Person Food, Drink, or Medicine
    • Because a person might not swallow properly during a seizure, giving food, drink, or medicine could lead to choking.

 
When it comes to emergencies, one can never have enough preparation. Understanding basic strategies for seizures, as well as other emergency practices can very well mean the difference between life and death.

STS Booth PicHello WY Friends,

The WPTA Trade Show never disappoints!

Thank you for visiting our booth at the 2017 WPTA Trade Show in Casper, WY. I enjoyed seeing everyone again this year. This is what we talked about:

1. WY specific school bus driver training. Our Wyoming School Bus driver training is recognized by DOE as covering the classroom requirement for school bus drivers. It can be used each year for the 6 hour requirement.

2. Defensive Driving training. We offer a defensive driving curriculum that is intended for any driver operating a school owned vehicle (van, suburban, car). This training series includes the online courses: Driving, On the Road, Road Awareness, Safety, Sharing the Road, Traffic Lanes, Turning, and The Threat of Road Rage.

3. Custom Training Catalogs. We can put together a custom catalog built to your specifications so your employees get the right training. Courses can be pulled from our full transportation catalog or general topic courses like Sexual Harassment Awareness, Bloodborne Pathogens, Time Management, or Stress Management.

I would be happy to send any additional information. For those who have already requested information or preview access to courses, information is on the way.

Thanks again for visiting the booth!
