By HANS DUVEFELT, MD After my posts on telemedicine were published recently, (this one on Manly Wellness before the pandemic and this one after it erupted, on A Country Doctor Writes, then reblogged on The Health Care Blog, KevinMD and many others), I have been asked about my views on telemedicine’s role in the future of primary care.

Authors: Lee Y, Chang HY, Kim SH, Yang MS, Koh YI, Kang HR, Choi JH, Kim CW, Park HK, Kim JH, Nam YH, Kim TB, Hur GY, Jung JW, Park KH, Kim MA, Kim J, Yoon J, Ye YM Abstract PURPOSE: Anaphylaxis is an immediate allergic reaction characterized by potentially life-threatening, severe, systemic manifestations. While studies have evaluated links between serious illness and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), few have investigated PTSD after anaphylaxis in adults. We sought to investigate the psychosocial burden of recent anaphylaxis in Korean adults. METHODS: A total of 203 (mean age of 44 years, 120 females) pat...
