These patients had been asked to return on a different day for repeat scanning with 5mg of intravenous diazepam, administered ten minutes.
Contrary to previous experiences with oral diazepam, the data presented herein supports the use of IV diazepam as an effective premedication to suppress BAT activity on FDG-PET/CT, particularly involving the typical locations in the neck and the mediastinal, para-spinal and para-adrenal regions.
Moreover, BAT is richer in mitochondria than white fat, as demonstrated by the greater abundance of cytochrome c, a mitochondrial marker. This gene’s function is adaptive thermogenesis, which generates heat instead of ATP.
Each mL of this sterile injection contains 5 mg diazepam compounded with 40% Diazepam injection should not be administered to patients in shock, coma.
Diazepam injection should not be administered to patients in shock, coma, or in acute alcoholic intoxication with depression of vital signs. As is true of most CNS-acting drugs, patients receiving diazepam should be cautioned against engaging in hazardous occupations requiring complete mental alertness, such as operating machinery or driving a motor vehicle.
When diazepam is used with a narcotic analgesic, the dosage of the narcotic should be reduced by at least one-third and administered in small increments.
•Do not mix with any other injectable medication, may precipitate when administered in a D5W IV line. •Diazepam should be diluted 1 mg with 1 ml in NS and.

i.e. • To determine volume to be infused, double dose (in mg) and divide by 10. 2mg = (2x2) / 10 =0.4mL Dosages.
Narcotics, barbituates, alcohol and anti-depressants can potentiate effects Special Considerations.
• (sedation) 2 - 5 mg slow IV at < 5 mg/min, repeat every 30 minutes - 4 hours, PRN Pediatric:
• (seizures) 0.2 mg/kg slow IV at < 1 mg/min, repeat every 5 - 15 minutes, PRN, to a maximum of 20 mg.
• As the use of benzodiazepine is increased, anxiolytic effects are first produced, followed by anticonvulsant effects, a reduction in muscle tonus and finally sedation and hypnosis Indications • Sedative/anxiolytic • Anticonvulsant • Amnestic Contraindications.

Rectal diazepam solution is as good as rectal administration of intravenous diazepam in the first-aid cessation of seizures in children with.
Among the 24 subjects, 9 males and 15 females, treated for a period of 3 months, the ages ranged from 2 to 18 years, with a mean of 9.1 years. There was no significant statistical difference in efficacy and safety between these two forms of diazepam. Four episodes (3 with rectal IVD and 1 with SRT) of prolonged seizure beyond 20 minutes needed IVD injection at our emergency room. Twenty-one (87.5%) of them had mental retardation and/or developmental delay, and 103 of the 127 (81.1%) IVD administrations and 90 of the 103 (87.3%) SRT administrations resulted in rapid cessation of seizures within 10 minutes.
