Autonomic Dysreflexia Factsheet

Autonomic Dsyreflexia (AD) can happen when a person with spinal cord injury (SCI) experiences pain or discomfort below the level of their injury, causing autonomic responses like increased heart rate or body temperature. The injury may block the body's response to return to resting function, creating a potentially life-threatening medical condition. The factsheet discusses who is at risk, triggers and symptoms of AD, treatment and prevention options, and more. The factsheet is also available in Spanish.
