This is a special type of pillow which is more breathable and reduces the risk of suffocation if the person has a seizure in bed.
For people with epilepsy, a seizure in bed might pose a risk of suffocation through restriction of breathing if the seizure pushes the person’s face into the pillow. Using an Anti-Suffocation Pillow (epilepsy pillow) can help ensure that breathing doesn’t become obstructed during a seizure, enhancing individuals’ safety and offering reassurance to families and carers.
Anti-Suffocation Pillows are breathable, which helps allow free air flow, and for fluids to drain away. Note: Anti-Suffocation Pillows do not detect seizures.
