BHC’s Crash Survival Guide provides the patient, their support network, and medical providers with practical advice on ways to manage a ME/CFS crash, and the art of preventing them. 


The ME/CFS Crash Survival Guide is designed for the patient, their support network, and care team to:

    • Understand ME/CFS and its defining characteristic of post-exertional malaise (PEM).
    • Help the individual prepare in advance for a crash/PEM episode, ensuring their critical needs are met.
    • Offer adaptive guidance in carrying out everyday living activities that support energy conservation with ME/CFS.
