what should a person do when a person is having a seizure.

I just meet this person and I want to know what to do when he have a seizure

Here are few tips:

  • Gently roll the person onto one side.
  • Put something soft under his or her head.
  • Loosen any tight or restrictive clothing.
  • Don’t try to put your fingers or anything else in the person’s mouth.
  • Don’t try to restrain someone having a seizure.
  • Don’t attempt to rouse the person by shouting at or shaking him or her.
  • Observe the person closely so that you can provide details on what happened.
  • Time the seizures with your watch.
  • Keep calm and reassure others nearby.
