There's a lot of handwringing over applying the TK, both with services and medical directors.

Historically, we've always seemed to make our greatest progress, and reducation on the basics, in times of war.
Thank you for clarifying. I should indeed have referred to the use of the TK being current MILITARY practice.

I think EMS has gone through tremendous changes even in the last five years. I think we're in for a lot more. It's actually kind of exciting to watch.
