Question this poor child had a 28 min seizure

HI . A child in my sons class had a seizure that lasted 28 minutes .
I dont know a lot about her parents , but I believe they have tryed everyting . she has been on all kinds of meds . she even has that implant thingy .
I feel helpless . I just want to do SOMETHING to help but what ?
is it common to have a seizure that long .??? my son has had three due to a brain injury , but we have them until control with lamical .
this precious child has had seizures since the age of five . she is now 17.
I do know they take her to the childrens hosp in St Louis . Mo
IS there a place somewhere out there that has come up with anything better / anything new ?? thank you for any help ... debbie

Re: this poor child had a 28 min seizure

so nice of you wanting to help these parents. 28 minute seizures are not at all normal, they are status epilepticus and an emergency situation. St Louis is a pretty good center from what I have heard. Even good places sometimes need a new pair of eyes on a case. You can do a search and find Epilepsy centers.

I sure hope this child is ok! There are medications like Ativan and Diastat that can help end prolonged seizures....
