What Is The First Aid For Convulsions?

Amazing first aid you should give to any convulsion patients.


At times children might have seizures or convulsions, and you're confused on what to do. Some African culture would
advice you to put a spoon in the mouth [to eliminate tongue biting] and keep them near the fire place while looking for some solution, but I don't totally support that. 

Now the first is to actually know what is wrong with the kid. Some popular symptoms of convulsions are: 
- Uncontrolled rapid shaking 
- Experiences trouble when breathing
- May turn blue 
- Will be unconscious for some moment 
- It might have been caused by an intake of something poisonous...



This issue can be terrifying to adults, especially the parents but it is most advisable to put yourself together and take care of things. It doesn't actually pose serious health challenges, but to be on the safe side, you have to seek medical attention. Cases of fever have been proven to trigger this issue in toddlers.

However, you should consult your physician if your ward has had issues of convulsion before. 
Meanwhile, while waiting for the pediatrician, you should: 
- Place the child in a place away from objects that could pose to be danger to them. 
- Always loosen tight clothing anywhere if present especially the neck and head regions.
- Never put anything in the mouth unless instructed to do so. 
- If vomiting occurs, move kid to one side and clean the mouth.
- Also never try to with hold the child's movement.
