Then I had the correct line of thinking...that when person is unconscious thats when ER help should have been called. Way I was looking at situation was, even if person was awake when amublance arrived, the way the seizures were coming closer together, they could have transported person when person was unconscious.
Thanks for replying..
No need to be sneaky about it. Calling for help
when needed is appropriate. If the person is going in and out of consciousness, it is appropriate to call paramedics/ ambulance. If the situation improves and the person is walking, talking, and lucid when care arrives, he/she can always refuse the care. However, with paramedics and transportation right there, even if the person is conscious by then, it is more likely that he/she can be convinced that care is needed.
When I taught CPR classes, I used to tell my students, "Even is someone insists that they are okay when you see that they are obviously showing signs of a heart attack, just go into the next room and dial 911. That way, you already have help on the way in case they person becomes unconsious or goes into cardiac arrest. If it is a false alarm, you'll have a story to share and laugh about later."
I would say the same theory applies in the situation you described.
