Epilepsy in schools: how to deal with a tonic clonic seizure
The Difference between Seizures and Epilepsy
First Aid in Seizures
An epileptic seizure is a brief episode of signs or symptoms due to abnormally excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. The outward effect can vary from uncontrolled jerking movement to as subtle as a momentary loss of awareness. Diseases of the brain characterized by an enduring predisposition to generate epileptic seizures are collectively called epilepsy. A seizure is a medical emergency for which medical personnel should be summoned, particularly in patients without a history of or without a seizure management plan in place.
