The Things That Matter
We here at 911 Tactical Medicine have been blessed in all accounts when it comes to the things that matter. This week it was a prior student calling to thank us on how smooth schooling was going and how much things made sense to them. Two weeks ago it was a call from another group of students who had saved a patient who was in no shape to have lived yet the correct procedures where done that saved the life. They where not 911 EMS protocol driven "Cook Book Medicine" but patient outcome driven. A month and a half ago a former student (Doctor) called from overseas thankful for the training and wanting to be able to get more, not just for him but all of his men there stuck in an austere environment.
When in class listen to the experience. Its not the book by itself but what is being said that correlates to the writing that has the experience and knowledge to back it up. What is being taught should be put in a perspective that is easy to understand where it is complex in writing broken down "Barney Style" as we like to say. At the end of the day medicine is medicine. No matter how you sling it. The only thing that changes is how you apply it in the given environment you are in at the time. The outcome becomes the things that matter.
