The Fatal Five are conditions that adversely effect, and can prove lethal to, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The five conditions are aspiration, constipation, dehydration, seizures, and sepsis. In this infographic, we break down what can cause each of these conditions, the warnings signs to be aware of, and how to prevent them. We've also made them printable so you can have them at the office as an easy reference!
