“Should you give your preferred benzo by the fastest means possible? Or establish an IV and administer via that route? The short answer provided by this study, is to give your benzo IM or IN. While seizures stopped sooner after IV administration, the additional time needed to establish an IV resulted in overall longer seizure time when administered via that method” (by Jeremy Fried in Research and Reviews in the Fastlane 182).
