Seizure First Aid
T: Take care to protect the person
E: Ensure you stay with them
A: Allow the seizure to run its course (you cannot stop a seizure and in most cases it will last for a few seconds to a few minutes).
M: Move the person onto their side when the seizure is over (for tonic clonic/ convulsive seizures)
Remember to reassure the person after the seizure is over and explain what has happened.
