That Others May Live

Relevance to small unit care discussed as well.

Jan 5, 2022

Doc Kashlan is a Neurosurgeon at the University of Michigan specializing in the Spine and Spinal Cord. He is also a Flight Surgeon in the Air National Guard.

We will do two series of podcasts with him. The first is to discuss spine injuries in Operators, mostly from wear and tear. Later we will do a deep dive into combat injuries of the spine and spinal cord.

In this episode we introduce Doc Kashlan and review the anatomy and function of the spine, and review critical elements in the history and physical examination.

Happy New Year

That Others May Live

Dec 27, 2021

I have heard some honest discussions from Operators who prioritized Career over Fatherhood. You can do both, it just has to be a conscious effort.

Marcus is doing research and creating a practice to coach men how to be better Dads. This is a phenomenal idea, parenting does not always come naturally, and having a coach may be just the answer. In this 2 part discussion Marcus addresses:

1. Creating a Dad-Identity- seeing yourself as a Dad; understanding the importance of the role.

2. Consistency- discipline, routines, keeping promises.

3. Importance of play.

4. Not perfect, PRESENT-putting Dad time on the schedule; focusing attention on them; listening.

Holiday season is an important time to reflect on family, and what we can re commit ourselves to.

I hope this is meaningful during this time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Dr Lim from SKRATCH LABS talks about overtraining. This is an insidious syndrome from doing too much and not recovering enough. It is complex, can take 2-4 weeks to recover from, and is all too common.
Avoiding overtraining along with reducing injuries from training is one of the reasons we need coaches, very few people can coach themselves when training hard and operating harder!

This is an exceptional discussion from  the FDNY EMS Med Director on scene, roving CCPs, loss of C2, the human toll in the middle of it all, losing his senior enlisted, and getting knocked out by the blast wave from the second collapse, regrouping and finding work. One of the many heroes, thousands of them from 11 SEP 2001.

The 106th Rescue Wing is on Long Island. Many of our Guardsmen are NYC Firefighters and Police Officers. In this series we will hear from New Yorkers who responded to the attacks here in New York. All of this on the backdrop of the news of the last few weeks. From our FDNY, NYPD, EMS first responders, and our citizens who perished in the attack,  to our Marines we recently lost, I hope we will honor and remember all Americans and partner forces who have made sacrifices during GWOT.
