Loss of Consciousness Precautions
Seizure, Syncope, and Loss of Consciousness Precautions
If you have been diagnosed with epilepsy or if you have experienced loss of consciousness resulting from a seizure or syncope, your doctor has likely recommended that you follow loss of consciousness precautions. These measures include not driving (until the Department of Motor Vehicles and your physicians have authorized you to drive), avoidance of heights, avoidance of open flames, following swimming and water safety precautions (do not swim or go in the tub without supervision), and refraining from working with power tools.
Common sense should guide your choices. Ultimately, you should ask yourself, "If I participate in this activity and lose consciousness, is it possible for me or another person to be injured or harmed?” If the answer is “Yes,” you should refrain from participating in the activity.
