All patients about to receive acupuncture should be asked if they have a history of convulsions. Patients who do have such a history should be carefully observed during treatment. If convulsions do occur, the practitioner should remove all needles and render first aid. If the condition does not stabilize rapidly or if convulsions continue, the patient should be transferred to a medical emergency centre.
