No question from me, just a lot of love and solidarity from a US paramedic. Keep alert and fight the good fight.

It's all about priorities. Yeah there's a guy with grey matter on the ground, and he's technically still alive, but that guy over there that was ejected with a leg off needs his bleeding controlled NOW or he'll be just as dead as head injury dude. And your backup is fifteen minutes out. Who can you help? You certainly can't put Guy 1's brain back in. You can apply a tourniquet. Do what you can, where you can. Shitty calls to make, but it's what we signed up for.
There's always beer at the end of the shift.
