First seizure pack and video

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.
