Epilepsy – Immediate Medical Attention

October 12, 2021


While most seizures don’t need immediate medical attention, there are a few circumstances that do require a trip to the emergency room. If the seizure happened in water, there is great concern about drowning and oxygen not properly flowing to the brain. If a grand mal seizure happens in a pregnant woman, she should probably be evaluated right away to make sure both she and the fetus are okay. Did the person’s seizure hit the five minute mark without stopping or did they have another seizure before the first one finished? Has the person not regained consciousness after the seizure stopped? Have they not started breathing normally again? Is this the first seizure the person has ever had? All of these situations should prompt calling 911 and getting emergency care.
