In this episode of the Physician Grind Podcast, Dr. Zahir shares with us a story of when an emergency suddenly ended his vacation. He had just returned from a "soul searching" trip to India and South East Asia, when he decided to go bowling with old friends. On his drive home the traffic on the freeway suddenly stopped. What he found was a motorcyclist on the ground that had been involved in a terrible accident. Dr. Zahir struggles with dealing with an emergency outside of the comfort of an Emergency Department. He feels useless as he tries to figure out what to do to help begin the resuscitation of the patient. Luckily paramedics arrive before the patient loses his pulse and are able to scoop and run.
