VERY interesting.

Well, this explains why our allergist has INSISTED that waiting to have EMS evaluate is very very very dangerous-- that they are less likely to actively treat anaphylaxis masquerading as asthma.

Unfortunately, bronchodilators don't stop cardiovascular events from progressing.  Bummer, that.
Resistance isn't futile.  It's voltage divided by current.
