In this video, you will hear from ADSHG members Deana (with her son, Daniel), Debbie, Frances, Ian and Tag, who discuss their experiences of giving themselves or a family member an emergency injection of hydrocortisone. Our thanks to them all for sharing their stories with us.
You can purchase the emergency injection kit (minus the drug preparations) featured in this video from the ADSHG web shop.
We also have further films in our video hub that provide step-by-step instructions on how to give an emergency injection during an adrenal crisis using different types of medication and equipment. Viewers may be interested to learn that Deana is, in fact, Deana Kenward and the president and founder of the ADSHG.
Our videos are free for all to view, but if you would like to make a donation to the ADSHG to cover our remaining production costs, please visit our JustGiving page.
This video was produced by Frank Films and part-funded by a Society for Endocrinology patient support grant.
