Penetrating Chest Trauma

I agree wholeheartedly.  However, from an ED standpoint the 2 ED's in my 
town are dead equal.

The only difefrence is one hospital has bypass potential (call in after 
hours with a 1 hour response time) and the other does not.  From the 
discussion so far, that point is moot for penetrating chest trauma (and 
probably blunt to a point).
