Emergency cards have all the essential information on the management of the patient with a rare skin disease. They are produced by the ERN-Skin experts, along with SKIN ePAG advocates. Rare skin diseases are unknown to most medical staff. In an emergency situation, it is vital to provide adequate care to avoid any complications. These emergency cards are the size of a business card and are written in the national language so that patients can carry them at all times.
We (ERN-Skin) have developed emergency cards for the following groups: Cutaneous diseases related to DNA repair disorders, Ectodermal dysplasias, Epidermolysis bullosa, Severe cutaneous drug reactions, Ichthyosis & Plamoplantar Keratoderma!
