In this episode, Gina explores the issue of self-monitoring with health care equipment for persons with anxiety. Anxiety and panic are thought to account for one in five visits to the emergency room and are often mistaken for heart attacks. Gina advises on whether or not persons with anxiety should be using medical self-monitoring devices outside of that prescribed by health care professionals and recommends finding a health care provider you can trust and work with.
