You know people always say 'I wish there was something I could've done'?
I do something every day. I KNOW what it takes to keep EVERY single person alive. I know how to counteract [fix] a LOT of complications. I hear of my friends, or even aquantances passing and I think, 'damn, if I could've been there, I COULD have saved them'
I know I could've. and it eats at me, because their gone, and I could've prevented it.
Not I wish I could've, but I know I could've..... hard swill to pallow.
I know I can't save everyone, dont take me wrong, however, every person needs the same thing, oxygenation to their tissues, perfusion. Simple fix, if they aren't breathing, breath for them. If they have no pulse, then YOU pump their blood, and they are still alive. Machines keep people alive like this FOREVER, and if you can reverse the cause, you can bring them back from the clutches of death. You fight the inevitable. and at times you "win" but it always seems to getya in the end, and when does, it hurts everyone.
RIP to all those that I could NOT save.
