Seizure First Aid – Teaching others what to do - Do you ever worry that others won't know what to do if you, or your loved one, have a seizure? If so, it's time to have a Seizure Plan - a tool that helps you share important information about your seizures and what to do for seizure first aid. Seizure Plans give you a way to let others know when you need emergency help and what can be done to prevent this from happening! My Epilepsy.com's Seizure Plan can now be created online using My Epilepsy Diary. The information you've already entered for types of seizures and medications can be automatically filled in from your diary, then you complete the rest! You can review it with your doctor and nurse, then print it out and share it with anyone you want. Keep one at home in a handy place for other family members to use, give one to a teacher, babysitter, camp counselor, coworker, friend, or grandparent…. whoever may be in a position to help during a seizure. Since summer time is a upon us, Seizure Plans are a great way to help people with seizures stay safe at camp, on vacations, and at home.
