Emergency Dental Box 2017 Update

Following changes to the BNF’s guidelines for the management of medical emergencies in dental practice, Tayside Pharmaceuticals has updated the Dental Emergency Kit that it supplies to dentists across Scotland.

The change involves the removal of Midazolam 10mg/2ml ampoules which previously could be administered by the buccal route, and replaced by Midazolam Oromucosal Solution (Buccolam). This has been endorsed by BDA Scotland.

As practices have only recently received new boxes it is proposed  that new boxes are introduced when the existing box expires.
