In brief: EPILEPSY

Having a seizure next to you, call 911 if the attack is prolonged to be evaluated in the er for treatment.
Help the patient to be comfortable not to hit anything or hurt himself. If possible put something in the mouth to protect biting lips. We are talking of grand mal seizures not petit mal.
