HAE Emergency Cards
An emergency card can be a quick and effective way to let healthcare professionals know that you have a diagnosis of HAE when you arrive at a hospital or care center, and the treatment that should be considered.
The HAEi Regional Patient Advocates have developed a template emergency card, which contains clear and simple information about HAE and treatment required during an attack. It also contains space for patients to add personal information such as emergency contact details and their specialist treatment center.
The card has been translated into a number of languages and is being used by HAE advocacy organizations around the world.
Here you can find examples of these cards for you to download and use. It has been designed to be printed at home, cut out and folded in half to create a card that can fit within a wallet/purse.
These have been designed to be used by HAE patients from all countries and can also be adapted by other HAEi member organizations. If you are a member organization and have designed your own emergency card that could be displayed here, or would like help adapting a card, please contact project manager Deborah Corcoran at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not a patient or part of a HAEi member organization and would like to use one of these cards, please contact the Regional Patient Advocate for your area and inform them you plan to use the card. Contact details for the Regional Patient Advocates can be found at http://haei.org/organization/meet-the-rpas/.
We currently have 12 cards and will be adding more.
