I found this info on Web MD (type in seizure)
No matter what caused the seizure, you can take steps to protect a person during a seizure and to get help after the seizure.
- During a seizure:
- Protect the person from injury. If possible, keep the person from falling. Try to move furniture or other objects that might cause injury during the seizure.
- Do not force anything, including your fingers, into the person's mouth. This may cause injuries such as chipped teeth or a fractured jaw. You also could get bitten.
- Do not try to hold down or move the person.
- Try to stay calm.
- Pay close attention to what the person is doing so that you can describe the seizure to rescue personnel or doctors.
- Time the length of the seizure, if possible.
- After a seizure:
- Check the person for injuries.
- Turn the person onto his or her side when the seizure ends and he or she is more relaxed.
- If the person is having trouble breathing, use your finger to gently clear the mouth of any vomit or saliva.
- Loosen tight clothing around the person's neck and waist.
- Provide a safe area where the person can rest.
- Do not give the person anything to eat or drink until he or she is fully awake and alert.
- Stay with the person until he or she is awake and familiar with the surroundings. Most people will be sleepy or confused after a seizure.
