I'm a preschool RN (kids ages 3-5)
I have a 3 year old, that has history of stroke, that is now having some new seizures. He had one Tuesday and stopped breathing for 3 minutes (at home- this was after he got off the bus).
I spoke with parents today when they dropped him off, they brought the emergency diastat for me to have at school.
Now here is my very (im sure :)) stupid question! Because I am from the hospital setting and 90% of my ped population that had hx of seizures were trached! If they stopped breathing we would bag them. SOOO if this kiddo were to have a seizure at school, and mom said he will stop breathing, after 3 minutes to go ahead and give diastat, but do you do mouth to mouth while their seizing? OR do you wait for them to come to?
I'm not used to being the sole medical professional making all the decisions and I think im just over thinking and nervous.
