Re: What do I do if he has a seizure? - April 8th 2010, 06:54 AM

Ask him if they're grand mal or petty mal. Petty mal are typically easy to feel comming as described from a patients experience and require no help from you. There is often never any signs of them other than the person looks like they spaced out for between 5 and 60 seconds.

If he has grand mal, these are much more serious. The key is to get him flat on the ground, laying down, and make sure his head is clear of any obstacles. If possible put a helmet or pillow around his head. As said before, if it persists for more than 5 minutes seek professional help.
