6 lifesaving lessons from the ER

ABC News, November 8, 2013
On his first night as an attending physician, moonlighting in the ER of a rural southern hospital, Dr. Travis Stork got his first postgraduate lesson in life and death. "A father frantically ran into the ER carrying a young boy who was unresponsive and barely breathing," recalls Dr. Stork, the Emmy-nominated cohost of the award-winning talk show The Doctors. When the child's breathing became more faint and his lips started turning blue, Dr. Stork knew he had to act quickly.
