Seizure: What to Do | 60 Second First Aid

(dramatic music) – There are all sort of seizures and they can result from
a huge number of causes. Generally it’s because
of a reduced blood flow to the brain and that can
be for all sorts of reasons including cardiac arrest. If someone’s having a seizure, protect their dignity
and protect their safety. Time the seizure. Keep them safe, so support
and protect their head. Don’t restrain them in any way and if the seizure lasts for
longer than five minutes, make sure you get an
ambulance on the way fast. When the seizure stops, check
to see if they’re breathing. If they’re not breathing, start CPR, if they are breathing, put them in the recovery position to protect their airway and get an ambulance on the way if you’re concerned for any reason at all.
