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.

This is a unique presentation.
