Seizure in the Skies of Remoteness: A Case Review
Conclusion While this case review describes an unusual approach to a medical retrieval, remote health care providers in developing nations face major clinical, ethical and legal challenges such as these described. The challenges of prehospital care are dynamic, yet in the remote context they are even more so. In these situations, a careful assessment of risk verses reward is paramount. In these situations, it I just as important to withhold certain interventions as it is to administer them. References Broughton W. Pre-hospital paediatric seizures: midazolam versus diazepam.
