Epilepsy and Midazolam Management

Epilepsy and Midazolam Management

Overview

Overview

Epilepsy is a disorder of brain function that takes the form of recurring convulsive or non-convulsive seizures. Epilepsy is not just one condition; rather it is a diverse family of disorders comprising many seizure types. 10% of the population are at risk of experiencing a seizure during their lifetime, while 3-4% will go on to be diagnosed with epilepsy. There are seizures that are not epileptic such as those that result from diabetes, kinked blood vessels and a range of other health conditions. Midazolam is a medication that is commonly used for the acute management of seizures. Midazolam is effective for status epilepticus that has not improved following other treatments, and has advantages of being water-soluble and having a rapid onset of action.
