This is a story about and by Michael N. Cocchi, MD, a fellow in Critical Care Medicine in our Department of Emergency Medicine. He joined a group of doctors and nurses recently in a medical relief mission to Haiti. It was his first time on such a mission. When I heard some of his stories, I asked if he would be willing to share them with us.
The photo of his patient Yvonne and the circumstances surrounding it are described in the video.
