The Endocrinology Department has created an emergency steroid education video to educate our patients with adrenal insufficiency about the management of their steroid replacement therapy. 

This video delivers education regarding the management of their steroid replacement during illness, and we also demonstrate how to reconstitute and administer their emergency hydrocortisone injection, for use in the event of an adrenal crisis. 

We hope you find this short video helpful.
