Babak Sarani, former EMT and now trauma surgeon at a busy metropolitan hospital, draws upon patient cases and his experiences in the operating room and the trauma bay to review the basic principles of ballistics.  What are the most common causes of death following civilian public shooting events? Dr. Sarani will review the only study published to date to describe causes of death and the incidence of potentially preventable death following these events. The talk ends by discussing changes in operating procedure and strategy that may mitigate death following active shooter events.
