A recently deployed and very experienced DOD trauma surgeon just came back from a deployment and shares observations and thoughts on overuse of certain techniques and emphasizing know the indications and technical details of performing invasive procedures.

These procedures should be used when indicated, and not used when not indicated. 
There are potential adverse consequences of performing procedures. The downside is minimized when they are not performed if not indicated.

Although tension pneumothorax has declined as a cause of potentially preventable death, needle decompression should only be used when indicated to reduce unnecessary complications. Excellent technical performance through rigorous training is the other way to reduce complications.

This is a unique presentation. 

New slots have opened up for the FEB PJ paramedic recertification course, go to pjmed.com under training to contact the course manager to sign up.
