Autonomic Dysreflexia 

We do not yet have a formal information sheet on Autonomic Dysreflexia.

However you can download the Autonomic Dysreflexia Alert Card here (as a pdf) to print and carry with you.

Dysreflexia_Alert_Card.pdf 

The following link is to the Paralyzed Veterans of America website information on Autonomic Dysreflexia.
The information has been written for an American audience therefore it is intended for general information only.

If looking at the information please note that:

The emergency number in the UK is 999 not 911
The DoCSTC does not, in these circumstances, recommend gently irrigating the bladder as suggested on page 9
The document makes no mention of Nifedipine (see alert card above)
