The following video is a short sample from the program. A complete listing of our training products is available on our website. The tonic-clonic seizure is a generalized seizure that includes unconsciousness and full body muscle convulsions. There are three phases involved in this kind of seizure. In the tonic phase, the body stiffens. Breathing may stop, and the patient can become incontinent. In the clonic phase the patient convulses. He may foam at the mouth, drool, and become cyanotic. In the post dictal phase, the convulsions stop and the patient regains consciousness. He maybe drowsy and confused and complain of having a headache. The simple partial seizure involves tingling, stiffening, or jerking in just one part of the body. And does not include the loss of consciousness. It may include an aura, a sensory perception the patient has before a seize happens. An aura may include visual disturbances, sounds, odor, an odd taste, or other sensations that serve as a warning that a seizure is imminent. Thank you for viewing this program excerpt.
