EPILEPSY AWARENESS 

About the design

When creating this design Skullsy has illustrated the electrical influences within the brain which can cause sudden seizures. You can see that exposure to sudden electrical surges has caused Baby Skull, who represents your mind in all of our designs, to malfunction. Systems are down, the cogs aren't turning and Baby Skull is simply powerless and unsure how to recover from the situation. Epilepsy can be a critical condition. As always the design is a gateway for you to explain what Epilepsy means to you. 

 

🚨SEIZURE AID🚨

If you are currently with someone who you suspect is having an epileptic fit, please follow the guidance below.

 

1. STAY - STAY with the person until they are awake and alert. 

2. SAFE - Keep the person SAFE. Consider potential hazards and move them out of harms way. 

3. SIDE - Turn the person on their SIDE if they are not awake and aware.

Loosen any clothing around their neck and don't give them anything to eat or drink. Put something soft like a blanket underneath their head.  

IF THE SEIZURE HAS LASTED FOR MORE THAN 5 MINUTES AND THE PERSON HAS NOT RETURNED TO A NORMAL STATE, CALL THE EMERGENCY SERVICES IMMEDIATELY

 

WHAT IS EPILEPSY? 

The word "epilepsy" simply means "seizure disorders." It does not state anything about the cause of the person's seizures or their severity.

Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder in the world. If you have epilepsy, surges of electrical activity in your brain can cause recurring seizures. We can help you understand everything you need to know about epilepsy and what you can do about it.

Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes recurring, unprovoked seizures. Your doctor may diagnose you with epilepsy if you have two unprovoked seizures or one unprovoked seizure with a high risk of more. Not all seizures are the result of epilepsy. Seizures may relate to a brain injury or a family trait, but often the cause is completely unknown. 

 

WHAT IS A SEIZURE?

Seizures are sudden surges of abnormal and excessive electrical activity in your brain and can affect how you appear or act. Where and how the seizure presents itself can have profound effects.
