Every child who presents with a first afebrile seizure should be given a First Seizure Pack (see below) before they are discharged.
It contains important information for families including the following:
- general safety
- seizure first aid
- an event record for families to document any additional seizures
- and a PENNSW flyer.
We've also produced a video (below) that explains what happens after the first seizure and provides useful supervision and safety information.
