Rehabilitation team working with patients with spinal cord injury, physicians and therapists.
Autonomic dysreflexia (AD) can occur in anyone with SCI at or above the sixth thoracic neurotome. It is a potentially life-threatening acute condition due to an excessive, uncontrolled, sympathetic output in response to a noxious or no noxious stimulus below the level of injury.
The aim of this workshop is to shed light on controversies concerning AD. How difficult is the management of an AD episode? Are there cases of induced AD episodes which are acceptable or not? How should we assess the severity of AD episodes and educate patients prone to suffer AD episodes? Sexual activity and AD episodes.
