Autonomic Dysreflexia (AD) is important to know about, as it is a potentially life threatening condition that can be considered a medical emergency.

It requires quick and correct action, as serious AD can lead to a stroke. So it is important for people who are at risk from AD, and the people close to them, to learn about it.
