  1. NO! Oxygen…
    Increased oxygen saturation, displaces carbon dioxide, lowering the Seizure Threshold, causing increased and prolonged seizure activity.

  2. side lying= “Lateral Recumbant” (Left/Right).
    {8•) – FYI…

  3. CAN YOU:
    List and Describe, “ALL”, Types of Seizures???

  4. sidelying, not supine. to prevent aspiration.

  5. Side lying position, not supine. Prevents choking/aspirations if put vomits

    Patient on side with high flow O2 and head support ..if in ED then Iv lorazepam

  7. Grace Pena says:

    Make sure pt. is on back with pulling jaw thrust back to have open air way. Nose to ceiling. Try to keep arms and legs from flailing so they won’t bang on something and get hurt.

    What if ur home alone and u have a seizure?

  9. Have pt lay on side with head protection (pillow, etc,) do not put anything in the mouth! People with seizures tend to produce a lot of secretions, keep them on their side so they don’t choke on them.

  10. The patient should be on their side as to maintain airways, supine position might make the patient choke on their tongue

  11. during seizzure…observe d client…prioritize safety precaution..nevr use padded tongue during seizzure.

  12. Kent Ruboi says:

    Tongue depressor can be put before the seizures attack but during attack do not put anything in the mouth because it can cause harm. Most importantly, protect the head to avoid injury.

  13. Actually its better to not put anything in the mouth at all. And if you did use a tongue depressor there’s a change that they could swallow pieces of it and choke after biting it repeatedly (on top of their seizure.) Don’t take your chances. A bit up tongue is better than someone losing their finger or choking on chunks of wood

  14. Trayce RN says:

    They haven’t used anything in the mouth (depressor or bite block for 20 years ….)

    Christina I love this site ! See if u like it. Have a great week :)

  16. When seizures occur the patient must be in a supine position remove all objects that could harm.the side rails must be up and padded and must have a tongue depressor in order to avoid biting the tongue
