About this Publication

The ADSHG crisis guidelines give emergency medical treatment guidance for paramedics or hospital staff in the event of a person with Addison's suffering an adrenal crisis. This letter should be signed by your doctor.


In addition to the guidelines, you can also purchase emergency instructions in a handy credit card sized concertina wallet card from our shop ADSHG emergency wallet card (item 301)


Foreign language crisis guidelines
Whether you live outside of the UK or are travelling abroad, the ADSHG crisis guidelines has been translated into a number of language versions for the ADSHG by a native language speaking medic in that country. We would like to thank all those involved in the translations for their assistance.
