What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a range of disorders affecting the electrical activity of the brain. There are many different types of epilepsy. Most are characterized by unpredictable seizure. In layman terms this disease is called ‘fits’. Epileptic seizures are the episodes of involuntary movements of muscles that can vary from a short episode of undetectable period to long hours of vigorous shaking. Most seizures last from 30 seconds to two minutes. A seizure that lasts longer than five minutes is a medical emergency. These episodes generally recur and can result into physical injuries too like abrasions due to fall, tongue bite etc.Having a seizure does not mean that a person has epilepsy always.

Someone you know is having a seizure—What do you do?

If someone close to you suddenly has a convulsive seizure, there are certain things you can do to help him or her avoid any additional damage.

• Roll the person over onto their side. This will prevent them from choking on vomit or saliva.
• Cushion the person’s head.
• Take steps to maintain a clear airway; it may be necessary to grip the jaw gently, and tilt the head back slightly to open the airway more thoroughly.
• Do NOT put anything into their mouth. it is a myth that someone with epilepsy can swallow their tongue. But they could choke on foreign objects.
• Time the seizure. Take note: How long did the seizure last? What were the symptoms?
• Stay by the person’s side throughout the seizure.
• Respectfully ask bystanders to stay back.
