A mantra of the Navy SEALS is, "Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast." It's a reminder to approach any situation with deliberate and careful consideration and that the quickest route to complete a task is to be methodical and slow. When presented with a patient who attempted suicide via shotgun to the face, the team is faced with difficult, complex choices that require steady nerves, quick decision-making, and reliance on preparation and teamwork. Our team is joined by:
Brian Harrison EMT-P
Zak Saxton, RN
