Warning

Warning

  • These are true case histories with graphic pictures intended for a medical audience if you are squeamish or unaccustomed to seeing trauma pictures ask your neighbor to tell you if it is safe to look.

  • HIPPA will not be violated, many of these patients self reported their own injuries to the media and are part of the public domain.


Disclaimer

Disclaimer

  • These case histories are truly intended to teach paramedics, EMTs , nurses, physicians and all those involved in the Medicine community.

  • Sometimes true tragedies befall our patients and we never question, in real time, what we need to do to save their lives.

  • Treat all patients with the respect they deserve.


Disclaimer1

Disclaimer

  • However, sometimes our patients are truly knuckleheads and put themselves or others in harms way and at the end of the day we must sit back and review our treatment plan, protocols and interventions.

  • This talk is intended to examine the lighter side of what we handle on a regular basis. Through their own fate and luck, or lack thereof, our patients can teach us, as well as make us laugh.

"If you really are stupid, I would call that a disease. The lower 10 percent who really have difficulty, even in elementary school, what's the cause of it? "A lot of people would like to say, 'Well, poverty, things like that.' It probably isn't. So I'd like to get rid of that, to help the lower 10 percent."

James Watson, Ph.D

Co-Discoverer of the

DNA Molecule

On the concept of stupidity.

What Darwin didn’t Know and Why was it important ?

Darwin was a true scientist, he spent most of his life experimenting and trying to prove his theories.

Much of what he proposed was based on observation and theory only later did other scientist’s observations help to fortify his work.

He only published his work when the threat of others beating him to the punch became eminent.
