Bottoms up approach gets thumbs down

MagazineNovember 1998 (Vol. 9 Issue 8)Bottoms up approach gets thumbs down

We were disappointed with the light hearted manner in which the emergency use of rectal diazepam in epilepsy was treated in "A bottom up approach" (WDDTY, vol 9, no 5). For many people carrying rectal diazepam with them can prove potentially life saving, and reduce their and their family's anxiety. Both giving and receiving the medication can be upsetting, and therefore people reporting on the use of rectal medicines need to employ empathy and tact, not flippant wordplay.
