Life, trauma, death: A resident physician's perspective
from UConn Today
On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, our pagers began going off together — another trauma on its way to the trauma bay. As soon as I looked at the screen, my heart seemed to pause. “Four-year-old girl status post fall from fourth story onto concrete, GCS 11.” As an emergency medicine intern rotating on the trauma service, this was going to be my first pediatric trauma — I was apprehensive, to say the least.
