Are EpiPens useful several days from medical care?
Patient : I will be several days from medical care this summer in the Congo. Is there any point to bringing 1 or more EpiPens? If I go into shock or have a severe allergic reaction, does an EpiPen only buy several minutes to get to a hospital or does it sometimes have a permanent life-saving effect?
