“Uncontrollable bleeding, acidosis, cold. We all know what the combination means. We call it the triad of death. The point of no return. It’s the moment in the O.R. where we turn to damage control. You stop. You step back. You let the body rest and see if you can find a solution to the chaos that’s happening inside.
Once the chaos subsides, we have to go back, take another look. We have to ask ourselves, ‘Can this body be put back together?’ If we’ve done our jobs right, it can. We stop the bleed. We sow the damage. We make the body whole again. But no matter how hard we try, we have to realise some things just can’t be fixed.”
