What other type of crisis is there?

  1. I'm reviewing crisis situations and the treatments for each.
    So far I know: Sickle Cell Crisis, Myasthenia Crisis, and Addisonian Crisis. Are there other major ones I'm missing?

    Thanks!

    Isn't Adrenal crisis the same as Addisonian crisis?
    And you have a point about anaphylatic shock... there's a mild allergic reaction, then there's anaphylaxis/anaphylactic shock.

    thanks!
