It only stays in the system for a few hours and the next step is hospital anyway. To languish in a corridor, I bet. It is a sad and deliberate state of affairs, totally caused for ideological reasons by the present Administration govt.
I can hardly believe what you are writing! How can anyone administering such a package not do it face to face with discussion, advice and your agreement. I would be tempted to return it in original packaging The Endocrinologist is Miguel Dubono I think. It was the syringe and ampules that were a surprise.
For those that have this kit. Do you refrigerate it? If it requires refrigeration which I doubt if it appeared in the post it will say somewhere on the pack, together with an expiry date note that.
Do you think someone was told to send you a leaflet and cocked up and sent you the syringe kit too? I think the three parties involved all thought the other one had dealt with the mere patient, perhaps. Not sure who to complain to. GP, Rheumatologist or Endocrinologist. The Endo has suggested a rapid reduction to 3 mgs then sends a life saving kit. The Rheumie standing in for Sarah knows that would be really painful.
The GP is out of his comfort zone. Who is in charge? It's terrible and very unethical!! In my opinion anyway!!
As you say, they probably won't admit they are wrong but it may make you feel better!!! I still think instruction is necessary to self administer an injection though. Maybe they think everyone knows how to do it these days because of all the medical and hospital programmes on TV!! Oh that drives me crazy!!! They're supposed to have experts on hand but you're right Four of us were sitting watching the remake of Casino Royale and it got to the CPR bit - and 3 of us shouted "wrong speed!!!!
But it's the person who was being bashed hell out of half an hour ago sitting up and eating lunch that really irritates me. No broken ribs, bruises, no' weel at all I know what you mean!! I love Grey's Anatomy and they generally are very good It's about the only 'medical' programme I can watch!!
I worked as a senior member of an nhs legal team for 15 and i have voiced my opinion on going through PALS before as they actually have no authority to achieve anything. Go straight to chief execs office or the legal team if you want answers. Bxxxxy HxxL SJ! What a shock! You must be feeling a welter of emotions, shock, anger, frustration as you have to wait until Monday before you can vent all this to whoever prescribed and sent the offending article!
This is another link - in case you haven't come across it from the Society of endocrinologists Oh how I would love to be a fly on the wall when you vent your wrath!! Good Luck and let us know how this cock up happened Both my Endo and my GP wanted me to learn how to self-inject, when I was diagnosed Addison's last year.
I refused. I know, in an emergency, I would not have the presence of mind to inject my thigh. I have 2 ampoules Hydrocortisone, next to my phone, and am on the emergency list. I agree, SJ, it must have been a shock I think it's horrifying that they put a syringe in the post. What if it had gone to the wrong address, been opened by a nosy child Thank you for your thoughts advice. OH says he will rise to the challenge but mgs!!! Hydrocortisone is a much higher dose than pred - factor of 4 I think off the top of my head.
It's only 25mgs pred! Jane it is a terrible thing to happen. Why on earth did they send it? Very bad. Shocker SJ. Hopefully there was a contact number on the leaflet to direct you for more information. Beyond the product and worry about proper administration, there is the distressing thought that it may need to be utilized one day.
That, in and of itself, puts your condition front and centre. I have injected liquid vitamin B12 before, and it was one of the times I was grateful for thick, plump thighs I think you can practice on an orange if need be seems my grandpa did when he was diagnosed with diabetes.
Hope you get it all sorted out, and once again so sorry you had to receive this parcel so abruptly without forewarning. Take good care. I really hope not Leeleep.

VOY : " Flashback ".Jan 22, · Background: Randomized clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of adjunctive corticosteroids in septic shock have shown conflicting evidence of clinical relevance. Two trials in particular  looked at lower dose hydrocortisone (mg/day) and its effect on mortality in patients with septic shock resulting in conflicting results in regards to mortality, but both showing earlier reversal of.
