During the seizure, the nurse should maintain a patent airway, protect the patient's head, turn the patient to the side, loosen constrictive clothing, and ease the patient to the floor, if seated. The patient should not be restrained, and no objects should be placed in the mouth. After the seizure, the patient may require repositioning to open and maintain the airway, suctioning, and oxygen. When a seizure occurs, the nurse should carefully observe and record details of the event because diagnosis and subsequent treatment often rest solely on the seizure description.
