It seems your father had a seizure(fit) during dialysis. That is the reason he is on drug you mentioned. CT scan is done to rule out any bleed in the head. He needs to be investigated for loss of consciousness during dialysis. More common reasons are fall in blood pressure and low blood sugar specially in diabetics. You should discuss the details with your treating doctor
