  1. Wonderful article about your grandparents, Dr. Campbell. Very powerful and moving. Touching that you loved them so much and were so devoted to them. Wonderful.

    Mission Beach ’64-65 USNRTC stood and rode to shore. Still savor it.

    Would love to contact you concerning my “QT Drug List” warning ideas. I have the LQT-2 gene, and my husband and two living children, ages 35 & 33, have the LQT-6 gene. When my precious daughter, Emilie, was 22 years old, she died suddenly in her sleep from what we now know was Congenital Long QT Syndrome. By the way, the results of a Holter Monitor test done about 1989, clearly showed the issue. She was a textbook picture of the CLQTS patient, yet two cardiologists here in Phoenix missed her diagnosis. There needs to be an internationally understood warning in English (the language of pilots) that could be used in any medical facility or hospital in the world. I recently was treated in an ER for a severe head trauma and tail bone fracture, and they put an arm band on me saying “Falling Risk” but nothing about my Long QT Drug Warning even though I told them I had been diagnosed by one of the best doctors on this subject in the whole U.S.–the much renowned in his field—Dr. Arthur J. Moss at the University of Rochester in N.Y. What if I would have coded? Would they have given me the normal dose of epi used in codes??? If so that could have made sure I didn’t survive the SCA. I do not understand why the medical community doesn’t seem to understand the implications and causes for the “QT Drug Warning”.

    • Ms Puricell,
      Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. Too often, diseases like LQTS are overlooked. I agree that some form of identification must exist in patients with a confirmed diagnosis. Certainly hospitals and hospital pharmacies could do much more. In this age of electronic orders, a diagnosis of LQTS could be entered and whenever a QT prolonging drug is ordered, the order is halted and flagged–prompting a call from the pharmacist to the prescriber. This is what happens in cases of allergies now. Again, thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog post. I wish you luck in your crusade.

      • Dr. Campbell,
        I have peritoneal carcinoma stage 4 and they gave me 3 to 17 months life expectancy October 14th , 2012. I saw something on fox news about a therapy that you have used on leukemia patients with altering tcells and reintroducing the patients blood to them. Is this type of therapy something that might benefit me since blood feeds all cells?

  4. Hi Dr. Campbell, Thank you for your heart felt piece on waiting in June of last year. I have committed my second career to addressing the waiting experience both in the health care environment, i.e. dr. waiting room, surgical waiting room, exam room and also the time between appointments. I have done a great deal of research on this subject and am building a consulting company around the subject. I should be getting an article published soon, when I do, I will send you a link. Kudos to you for your sensitivity!

    My thoughts on this subject began to germinate 14 years ago as I started by healing journey from breast cancer. Check out my website if you get a chance!

    All the best!

  5. Morgan,
    Re ” real-time text updates to patient’s families throughout the course of surgery. ”
    Yes and No. And since surgery also includes recovery at any point in that continuum bad things can happen I would say the “Nos” carry the day. Bad idea but if such texting could be billed you may have something after all.

    Dr. Campbell,
    I enjoyed your post about clinicians saying, “I don’t know.” Given your interests, you may want to take a look at our new book, “Clinical Uncertainty in Primary Care: The Challenge of Collaborative Engagement.” You can access it for free if your medical library has the Springer platform. Once connected to your library, enter http://www.springer.com/medicine/book/978-1-4614-6811-0 into your browser. Hope you can access it!

  8. Dr Campbell,
    My wife of over 30yrs had knee replacement surgery just today (April 13th). She’s the “love of my life” and her first major surgery so you can imagine the anxiety pre-surgery for us beforehand and for me while waiting . I truly cannot imagine life without my better half. During the wait, I did much for well needed diversions including googling how to deal with the surreal emotions going through my person as it was quite frustrating given how helpless I felt, very unusual for me. Anyway, I read many posted articles and came across your post “How families cope with surgical waiting room” and I became calm and wanted to say THANKS SO MUCH for your article. God Bless You and please do more. You have a gift. Sincerely, James Manning, Raleigh NC

    • Mr Manning
      Thanks so very much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. I am so happy that your wife did well with her surgery and I am proud to know that my blog helped you while waiting for her to arrive in post op!
      All my best
      Kevin

  9. Hi, Kevin!
    That is a great piece on the EMR. I think your ideas are right on target. I have written on the subject myself: http://alphaomegaalpha.org/pharos/PDFs/2015-1-Ober-Applegate.pdf
    I am proud [but not surprised] to see all that you have accomplished since your medical school days.
    Pat Ober

    • Dr Ober–It is so great to hear from you. I often think about you and all of the important lessons– about being a doctor–that you taught me in Medical School . I hope you are well . I look forward to taking a look at your article Kevin
