Dr Ramzy: My working life has been focused on helping individuals and their families get through severe injuries and critical illnesses. As a surgeon specializing in trauma, emergency general surgery, and EMS, much of my work is with people in some degree of crisis (or at a minimum in an unplanned or undesired situation). I see my role and responsibility as not only correcting the biologic abnormality such as bleeding or infection, but also helping people and their families understand and cope with the situation and its aftermath, which may be a brief or life-long change. Although I deal with people during some health crises, there are of course several types of life crises, from those which we will all face to those which are very rare. While I do not claim personal expertise with every one of lifes crises, I have dealt with more than one, and some of the lessons I have gleaned in working with people in health crises are applicable to people dealing with other kinds of crises.
