This training covers the Buccal Midazolam administering in the Care Home sector – If you wish to include the Epilepsy awareness training please visit the Buccal Midazolam and Epilepsy awareness Training page.
Buccal Midazolam is an emergency rescue medication prescribed by a medical practitioner or nurse prescriber for the control of prolonged or continuous seizures which can be a lifesaving procedure. It is administered by a trained person to the buccal mucosa (between the gums and cheek) and is receiving wide spread acceptance due to its effectiveness in stopping seizures and its social acceptability.
Buccal Midazolam administering is a more dignified procedure than the administering of rectal diazepam. The issue of privacy and dignity are less compromised and in situations where it is not acceptable or convenient to use rectal diazepam, buccal midazolam is an effective alternative.
