Febrile Seizures

Seizures caused by high fever in small children are called febrile convulsions. a child experiencing a febrile seizure often lose consciousness, shaking, the limbs move, become rigid or contraction. Most febrile seizures last just a minute or two, but they may be shorter and more than that. about one in 25 children have at least one febrile seizure, and many of them are over 5 years before. Febrile seizures usually occur in children between 6 months and 5 years.

Although febrile seizures may seem daunting, it is unlikely that the child is injured. there is no evidence that this type of seizure causes brain damage. Here are some things a parent can do that can help prevent injury or suffocation.

    * Stay calm
    child seat * on a protected surface, such as soil
    * Do not restrain the child in convulsion
    Place the child on the belly * To prevent choking
    * Remove all elements of the path of the child
    * Do not place anything in the mouth of the child

There are some factors that may increase the risk of a child to have recurrent febrile convulsions. They include:

    * Be the first seizure before 15 months
    * Frequent fevers
    * Having an immediate family member with a history of febrile convulsions
    * Have a short time after the seizure from a fever has begun, or when the temperature is low



recommends that the child be examined by a medical evaluation as soon as possible, especially if he or she shows signs of a stiff neck, lethargy or vomiting.
