The point being, one needs to do an action with the worse case in mind.
I recommend you take a weekend and attend a Tactical Response course in Camden, TN. Mindset is a key concept that is internalized. Could be cathartic.
This looks fantastic - I've listened to all the talks up so far - great work. I'm really looking forward to hearing about an emergency physician led ECMO-CPR program, especially the comparison with the well developed intensivist-led mobile ECMO-CPR program at The Alfred.
