Steps To Take When An Adult Has A Seizure

Simple partial seizure:

• Steer the person away from any pressing dangers.

• Offer support and comfort to the person.

• Stay until the person recovers, in case she or he has a tonic-clonic seizure. Complex partial seizures:

• Steer the person away from any pressing dangers.

• Do not confine or try to divert the person.

• Stay with the person until she or he recovers.

Absence seizures:

• Steer the person away from any pressing dangers.

• Confirm that she or he has not missed any vital information during an 'absence'.

Tonic, atonic and myoclonic seizures:

• Make sure the person has no injuries, and, where necessary, give first aid.

• Stay until the person recovers and offer support and comfort.
