Hello Michael

I'm from israel, but we do have that show here on the discovery channel. It 
does show a great deal of intresting cases, and the commentary by the 
physician could give me some material. Thanks for the idea (actually it's 
aired today- but rather late at night. too bad- it's one of my favourate).

Naturally, me and the students have are own exprience and some of us can 
bring up our own "special" cases, but the problem is that we are all young 
and don't what it was like before ATLS, PHTLS, and surgeons dedicated 
specifically to trauma. So if any of you trauma "dinasours" can give me a 
clue, from their own experince, what it was like in the early days (and even 
before) of dedicated trauma care, I'd be be thankfull.
