A man came to the ED with gunshot (probably) buckshot to the face. I could've put my fist in the area ( bridge if the nose). He never lost consciousness and was talking. He returned a year later to have plastic surgery.

A man came to the ED that had been to close to a corn combine. One of His arms was severed with about 2 in of bone exposed. He didn't have t have a blood transfusion.
