Medical emergencies

In emergencies, your health comes first.

Always seek medical attention immediately and advise all medical staff that you are an athlete subject to doping control.

If your health depends on a prohibited substance or method, submit a TUE application immediately after treatment has occurred (retroactive TUE).

In these situations your doctor may be able to contact ASDMAC and speak directly to a medical practitioner member of ASDMAC for advice.
