First Aid

  • Make the person lie on the ground and turn to one side, so that if there is vomiting, it will come out easily without being inhaled into the lungs.
  • Do not force anything in between the jaws.
  • Do not give anything to inhale (shoes / socks / etc.)
  • Do not try to restrict the convulsive movements.
  • Wait for the convulsions to end spontaneously. If facilities exist and a doctor or paramedical staff is present, give a diazepam injection to control persistent fits.
