  1. Emergency injections: tips and reminders This short video, narrated by Prof John Wass, contains useful tips and reminders for making sure you and your emergency injection kit are always prepared in case of adrenal crisis. You can purchase the emergency injection kit (minus the drug preparations) featured in this video from the ADSHG web shop. 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.
  2. How to give an emergency injection: Solu-Cortef, Act-O-Vial using a safety syringe This video explains how to give an emergency injection of Solu-Cortef using an Act-O-Vial bottle and a retractable safety syringe in the event of an adrenal crisis. It is narrated by Prof John Wass, Chair of our Clinical Advisory Panel, with injection demonstration performed by consultant endocrine nurse, Phillip Yeoh. The Act-o-Vial is not available in the UK as the product distributed in Europe contains a banned additive, benzyl alcohol[/i]. However, it is now the standard form of injectable hydrocortisone sodium succinate distributed by Pfizer, the licence holder, in North America, Australasia and mainland Europe. The product distributed in North America does not contain benzyl alcohol and some private clinics are importing this formulation to the UK. You can purchase the emergency injection kit (minus the drug preparations) featured in this video from the ADSHG web shop. 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.
