The topic of Epilepsy came onto my radar a number of years ago when I was getting lunch and saw someone abruptly drop and go into a seizure. I can clearly remember that very few people, if anyone,had any idea of what to do other than to call for an ambulance which of course could mean that several minutes pass before an Emergency Medical Technician arrives.
Due to the seriousness of this particular topic, I am just providing a link straight to the Center for Disease Prevention rather than rehash medical terminology and specific directives/information.
The Center for Disease Prevention
I also want to include some information form a school in the United Kingdom that has a special impact within the community of students with Epilepsy.
