Epileptic seizure, what should I do?

Is there what in epileptic seizures?

The duration and manifestations of epileptic seizures are different. Typical manifestations are convulsions, eye movements and loss of consciousness.

What should I do when I have epileptic seizures?

Once epilepsy breaks out, it cannot be stopped. What can be done is to minimize the risks that may occur to the patient during the seizure. The most important thing is to keep the respiratory tract unobstructed-respiratory tract obstruction is most likely to be fatal, and vomit often causes respiratory tract obstruction during epileptic seizures.

1. Adjust the patient to the side position

This is helpful for the discharge of secretions in respiratory tract and avoids choking or causing aspiration pneumonia. If the body posture cannot be adjusted, please deflect the patient’s head to both sides and wipe off secretions in time.

2. Remove sharp objects such as glasses from patients

Please remove your dentures if possible. Loosen the patient’s tie and untie or take off tight clothes so that the patient can breathe smoothly.

3. Protect patients from falls or bumps

But do not force the patient to press, so as not to cause fracture; Calmly wait for the attack to stop, record the attack time and stop time; If necessary, please call 120 emergency number.

4. Send to hospital if necessary

Most epileptic seizures do not need to be sent to a hospital unless the following situations are encountered:

(1) The onset time is too long (more than 10 minutes);

(2) Frequent attacks in a short period of time (more than 3 attacks within 30 minutes);

(3) Two consecutive attacks and no recovery of consciousness in the middle;

(4) dyspnea or injury.

If you cannot judge, please contact the hospital and let the doctor judge whether you need to be sent to the hospital for treatment.

5. Common Mistakes, Never Do This

(1) Don’t pinch people hard when epilepsy occurs.

Pinch people not only cannot stop convulsions, but also may bring additional injuries, such as crushing injuries.

(2) Don’t put anything into your mouth when you have epilepsy.

Strong masseter muscle closure during epileptic seizures may cause the patient to bite off what is inserted, while broken objects may lead to asphyxia and endanger life.

How to prevent epileptic seizures?

1. Adhere to the regular use of antiepileptic drugs

Adhering to regular medication is the key to control epilepsy and prevent epileptic seizures. Never stop taking drugs without authorization.

Step 2 Avoid inducing factors

Lack of sleep, coffee, alcohol, etc. may induce epileptic seizures. Attention should be paid to avoid them.
