Re: Your Info. Card on Autonomic Dysreflexia
My 21 year old son is in the E.R. as I write to you.
This evening he suffered from AD and I called the EMS. They (all 3) were totally unaware
of AD; very sophisticated truck w/all the bells & whistles you could want.
In the E.R., the head nurse was aware of AD, but the doctor
I'm writing to tell you how appreciative I am that you made available the laminated tri-fold info card on AD. All of the professionals needed the info to properly take care of my son.
Thank you for being a part of his care and rapid recovery.
He has the card in the backpack on his wheelchair & never goes out without this important info.
We are all in this together.
Our free AD card is available to print out or order a laminated copy online. Help spread the word. Send your friends to: www.ChristopherReeve.org/adcard
