#150: Dr. David King on combat surgery, massive hemorrhage, and the Boston Marathon bombing

Dr. David King (trauma and acute care surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, and Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army) discusses: - What combat surgery in an austere environment can look like. - How his experiences in combat and stateside have driven research efforts to develop novel ways to attack massive hemorrhage, such as with ResQFoam. - How the Boston Marathon bombing showed him that we don't need to convince good people to act and do good things. - Thoughts on the applicability and limitations of REBOA.   http://www.arsenalmedical.com/foam-system-acute-hemorrhage Follow Dr. King on Twitter @GeococyxVelox
