Buccal Midazolam Demonstration - for families and carers living in the West

Family with heart - signifying family support
16 Feb 2023

Buccal Midazolam is a rescue medication which has become more widespread in recent years and one which can be very important for people with epilepsy. It is administered during a seizure under medical advice and if given promptly, helps to reduce seizure duration. This relatively simple procedure can prevent major disruption to daily life resulting from hospital emergency treatment that can result from a prolonged seizure. 

Due to the nature of a person's seizures, a person with epilepsy's immediate family may have to administer Buccal Midazolam as they support their loved one on their journey with the condition. 

However, it is very important that the medication is administrated correctly and as part of this demonstration session, our Community Resource Officer, Catherine Caffrey will outline the correct procedures and protocols for administration to those in attendance – to help ensure you can support your loved one living with epilepsy.

We look forward to welcoming you on the night!
