Why We Do It

Episode 11- In the world of medicine we focus intently on advancements, improving patient outcomes, and pushing the bounds of science to better health, yet rarely as clinicians do we sit down to have detailed conversations with the very people we are trying to help or have helped.

 

It is a great privilege for us to speak with one person whose case was described in the episode Do What You Can, Air Force EOD TSgt Daniel Fye. Dan shares what it was like getting wounded by an IED in Afghanistan with the surprising symptom of unquenchable thirst to recovery & rehabilitation requiring him to regrow part of his remaining leg. Dan is an incredible example of perseverance, resilience, and strength all of which are exemplified by his recent completion of the fire academy & becoming a Firefighter.

 

Dan’s story reminds us that this is Why We Do It.

We respectfully remember the friend’s of TSgt Fye mentioned in the episode,

TSgt Kristoffer M. Solesbee & SSgt Joseph J. Hamski KIA May 26, 2011

Shorabak district, Kandahar, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Episode 10- Death is an inevitable part of medicine and few come face to face with it as often or as closely as emergency medicine providers. Christine is joined by Emergency Room nurse, Beth, as they discuss the unique, & sometimes oddly normal ways in which people have passed away. Nurses, paramedics, EMTs, and doctors strive to make death as dignified as possible, but peculiar situations seem to be the way of life.

Men Are Coming!

Bonus Episode! Haley from the episode “Nurse Jane” is back with a few more stories about medicine across the world. She shares the experience of working an out of hospital cardiac arrest while working as a teacher in Saudi Arabia on a student at an all women’s campus. Cardiac arrests outside the emergency department are much more chaotic, but even more so when you don’t have the proper equipment, the doctor doesn’t know CPR, and “Men are coming!”

Even when nothing goes right, a nurse will do their best for the patient.
