Knowledge is power,preparation and prevention.This morning as I'm teaching the kids ,12 year old girl started acting unresponsive to commands.As I approached her eyes gave me alarm,and I knew she was going to convulse and have a seizure.I'vee been teaching 24 years now with previous Law Enforcement and Military background,I've had the typical injuries,but never In front of kids.I THANK GOD for giving me the experience to help this young girl survive.GET FIRST AID CERTIFIED AND DEFIB. AT YOUR SCHOOLS!Pass the Knowledge.Peace

Knowledge is power. Elaborate. When someone is having a seizure arent you supposed to just let it happen and try to keep their head from bouncing off the floor or smacking into things?

Pretty much, then recovery position after they have "settled".

Right? Phone Post

Yup just monitor. Pad the head. Don't put anything near their mouth as their jaw will clench down. Recovery position is so the tongue doesn't fall back into the throat and prevent breathing. Phone Post

This happened in English class back in high school a couple years ago. This girl started seizuring and fell out of her desk and hit her head super hard. Was pretty a scary situation. We put her on her side and one of her best friends put banana on her lips. She said the potassium is supposed to help or something like that. Phone Post

I had a gf who developed a seizure disorder and she'd be standing there (or sitting) and just drop. I think a couple times I was able to see it in her eyes before it happened. Definitely some scary shit. She also stopped breathing multiple times and I had to perform CPR on her, assuming because of what MoBeffah stated (who knew? boy scout training from when i was 12 years old came in handy). But yea I pretty much was just told after the first one that if she had more that i basically was just to try to move her away from furniture and brace her head just enough to keep it from bouncing off the floor but not to hold it in place.

Anyways, glad to hear that the girl is back home and safe.
