Answer

Answer

After a single seizure, an appointment should be made with the child's primary care physician or a neurologist. This is useful to address any further questions the family has, review the need for further diagnostic testing, and discuss any further therapy. Families should also be encouraged to learn basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). CPR training according to the American Heart Association (AHA) or American Red Cross is highly recommended to all families.
