Seizure Activity

A seizure happens when abnormal electrical activity in the brain causes an involuntary change in body movement or function, sensation, awareness, or behavior. Seizures can vary from a momentary disruption of the senses to short periods of unconsciousness or staring spells to convulsions. Some people have only one type of seizure, while others have more than one type.


Designating responders can be a solution that will expedite care for the person having a seizure as well as reduce the fear, confusion, and panic that often occurs in a situation where a co-worker has a seizure at work.  One responder can be designated to call 911 if necessary, or a spouse or another contact person while a second responder keeps watch over the employee.
