@Jeffrey Williams Even with an AR, the bullets used were 5.56mm which appear just as small as a .22mm entry/exit wound. If we were talking around .9mm, then absolutely, the wounds would be a lot larger and raise more eyebrows. As far as the training goes, all trauma-related medical professionals (including pediatric trauma surgeons) have about 13-14 years of education/training under their belt. Gunshot wounds are one of the many things they learn in their schooling since it sadly happens in all sorts of ways, mass events aside. Real lives were definitely lost and real families are mourning the death of their babies. Photoshopped images and other possible theories of what really occurred aside.

I would also like to know what good would it do to take plasma out to an emergency out to a school or car accident or something happens when you don't even know what blood type these people are? Makes sense of that one!!! that's just my logic why would a doctor be even talking about doing something like this? Now leave me alone please!!! Go ask that position you're trying to protect!!!

Instead of getting your feelings hurt about my opinion which means nothing!!! Why don't you get upset about the news anchor asking the physician about the victims bullet wounds? These are things that physician mentioned!!! How about why were they bringing those patients in so much later if they were shot or whatever was happening and they were bleeding why were they showing up late to the emergency room? I would like to know why you would take blood or plasma that something so precious out to the field and risk losing it because you want to be faster response to an emergency!!! You can't be faster response to an emergency unless you knew about the emergency!!! I'm just using my logic but I know my opinion is nothing means more to you!!! Hahahahaha hahaha

@Michael Vera sorry Michael, but this is ridiculous. She is a physician and bound by Privacy practices. She can’t talk about specifics of the cases that can be tied back to the victims. It is against the law. Would you want the details of your child’s shooting spewed on national television? She is tying the cases together because this is her frame of reference and she is speaking about her previous experience and what they learned from that to improve and apply to this shooting. She has had to care for kids from two shootings! It is not like she has a slew of mass shootings to pull from. Also, they send blood to the scene so kids can be transfused en route to the hospital. In trauma cases, this can be life or death. They are being transported 80+ miles, being loaded into flights/ambulances/stabilized on the scene… this all takes time. Plus we know that the police took over an hour to enter that classroom. I’m not sure what you are reasonably expecting? Edit: spelling…

"We thought we would have more patients than we did"... That got me. I can't imagine how horrible it must be to be waiting anxiously for victims to arrive, so you could do your job and try your best to fix them, only for so few to show up because so many of the victims never made it out of the school.

She is more than a doctor, she has human emotions welling up as she keeps talking and describing how she is dealing with things. She appears to be on the verge of tears and is fighting hard not to cry! It takes a person with deep compassion to deal with a trauma room full of kids! I can't imagine how to turn it off and start working on those little kids. She and her team are heroes! God bless tham all! San Antonio's children will be in good hands!

What I find chilling (not coming from a country where we ever had a mass school shooting) is the way she said how well prepared "We will be for the next one". That sentence in itself is absolutely chilling and she says it without a blink of her eyes showing just how conditioned people are over there to this happening again.

not only that, but it was a prior shooting that meant they had the tools in place ready for this one. that's three layers of mass shootings that she's thinking about, all in one interview, without blinking or wavering. I read the unblinking matter-of-fact phrasing as her being beyond angry but knowing she has to accept it as reality. it's a constant conveyor belt of entirely preventable tragedy and it's horrific.

@Angela Miller I don't know how you live in that fear. That's like living in a war zone and ye have no war going on..well from outside the country. The Australian example should be followed because when they banned guns except for hunting all their mass shooting stopped and their society wasn't/isn't as violent as it was when everyone could have guns. Their history is a very good example of how a society can change but it takes a long time perhaps a few generations b4 gun culture is done away with. Stay as safe as you can 🙏 🙏 🤲 going out for you and all America's children

I'm so glad your country has never had a mass school shooting. I wish I could say the same about mine. We've had SO MANY over here in the US. We're not any closer to them going away. Every time one happens, we discuss gun reform, but nothing ever changes. I swear we had this exact same talk when Columbine happened in 1999.

That’s also what caught my ear (not from the US either). She talks about it like it’s a natural disaster where you can only prepare to minimise the damage of the outcome - not like it’s literally a man-made problem. But, as horrifying as it is, she is right: nothing will change in the near future and this will happen again and again and again and again and again... She just wants to do the absolute best that she can do where she’s at. WHAT A HERO!

This is why when you see doctors and nurses, ask them how they are doing genuinely. Imagine being part of that trauma/traumatic team, but they too as doctors and nurses are getting traumatized. Every time I go for a general check-up, I‘d ask my doctor how she‘s doing and you know she would open up once in awhile, same thing happened to two other doctors and nurses I‘ve met in the hospital. I know it is their job to make us feel better, but let us not forget they are not invincible and they also appreciate people checking on them.

That is very kind of you to think about the people who are taking care of you, and how they are doing. Such compassion. I tend to not want to pry into their private lives, but I think I will start asking them how they're doing, to give them a little moment of relief to share how they're doing if they wish to. Thank you!

I saw on Dr. Liao’s Twitter that she was on the local news just days before on 5/19 talking about the “Stop the Bleed” day & the importance of What better way to recognize the importance of the new federal legislation to support bleeding control kits in public places. There are not enough kind words and thanks and gratitude for her, all her OR and medical staff, all the hospital staff (nurses, patient techs, social workers, cleaning services, food services) and literally everyone else working to care for these patients and their families during an unimaginable time of grief and pain.

I highly recommend a "Stop the Bleed" class if it's available near you. Trust me, you'd never naturally/instinctively do what's taught in that class, it can be a life saver. Also buy a military-style tourniquet kit and leave it in your car.

She is intelligently trying to professionally decompress her emotional feelings safely. She is expressing her professionalism in her field with raw details, voicing her personal experience as a profession not a person off work. For that she is a very intelligent woman!

Absolutely. She is saying a LOT through her professional analysis. Saying someone can bleed out in 5 minutes and saying it only saved one in this case (although a precious one), when the police took so long. Her absence of personal opinion, let’s the facts shine. In describing what a bullet does to a child... she says a lot.

This piece really reveals how the Surgeons are routinely overlooked in their unbelievable heroism. We see constant enthusiastic appreciation being given to policemen, firemen, paramedics, EMTs, nurses, etc, but the Doctors are always left out of the Praise being awarded to these (deserving) others.

@Marble City Mysteries as a physician in Spain, you can always do more shifts or do 100% private if you are so money oriented. I have been offered jobs in the US, as have many of my colleagues, but money > health goes against a lot of our principles. Of course if you want to get rich, it's great. But it's the opposite of what we are used to/value.

@Sophie My experience is basically the same. ER and ICU doctors seem to be more involved, but general impatient not so much. They come into the room for 5 minutes and leave. Suddenly your meds are different and the nurse has to explain it. They aren't allowed to speak for the doctor so you have no one to ask until the next day when a different doctor comes in the room for 5 minutes. Most people probably haven't experienced being in a hospital for more than a couple of days. It's extremely frustrating to be INSIDE a hospital and barely have an opportunity to speak with a doctor who changes every one or two days. Nurses often know more than the doctor because they spend so much more time with the patients, but they aren't allowed to diagnose, because dOcToR. They have to hope the doctor reads what they put in a patient's chart and pays attention to it which may or may not happen when a doctor is doing rounds. They pop in the room, look at the chart for a moment, ask how you're doing, scribble some words and leave. If you ask questions about what yesterday's doctor said or did they often just don't address it and say he or she will be back tomorrow. As long as you're stable there's really no relationship because they change so often.

People like Vivian always gotta bring attention to themselves when something like this happens since she's clearly starved of it. Don't give the old bag what she wants. I do definitely admire the doctor's composure, it takes a special and strong kind of person to do something like that. What screws me up is that she mentioned the past mass shooting she's dealt with which implemented some important measures for this. This country is sick.

I spent many , many years working in Emergency rooms and Intensive Care Units. A lot of tears are shed by healthcare professionals in non public areas. There are some patients and situations where your humanity cannot be controlled by your professional training. You experience the grief as well, and it stays with you. I am retired now but there are patients I still remember after many years with profound sadness. I feel Dr. Lao will be ok eventually as she moves on to save the ones who can be saved. We know you cannot save everyone...but the desire to do so is always present in you.

She chose her field of employment for this very reason. To help at the most traumatic times and share her expertise with us. Doctors and nurses.. especially in the trauma dept have to see things that will break you as a human being. They are truly angels that go into it with a mentality that I only wish I had. I'm sure very rewarding but at the same time very mentally straining. Those people aren't paid enough to do that everyday.. for years and years. And still go home and help their kids with homework...cook dinner... and get ready to do it all again the next day. Champions isn't a good enough terminology or word for these people. I'm sticking with angels. Or saviour's. Those bullets did so much damage to their bodies. Some were almost decapitated...and most bodies had been hit as many as 8 times. Most of them at least 4 times. I still can't process in my mind the cowardness of these cops to not approach those rooms while listening to kids screaming for their lives. I just can't get past that. And none of them have been charged or any action has been taken against them? It's hard enough that this happened.. then to have the people who you supposedly have trust in so if this type of atrocity hits your school..you know you have help on the way. Sadly this isn't the case here. On that day and many days after that..I was and still somewhat am embarrassed to call myself an American. Things couldn't have been more worse than what happened in that school. What a damn shame.. I'm willing to bet our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shed a tear that day...I know I did. God bless the children and teachers that lost their lives that day. And to their family and friends...my family and i...wish you nothing but peace and comfort through these troubling times. We're very sorry for your loss..the Garcia family. Pueblo Colorado..

I've worked in a school cafeteria and you see the children on a daily basis. I can say this...every child is important and you can see their little personalities developing and it's so important for the adults around a child be encouraging and loving and not just a strict disciplinarian. I think long before a child needs mental help a caring adult can reach out and keep reaching out when they are witnessing a change in their behavior. Every child deserves to be safe and have a safe place to go to when they are in trouble physically and mentally.

Pray y’all have the strength and determination not only to get through this but also continue 🙏🏽😢

@FD Do your research. Chicago has the strictest gun laws and one of the highest rates of gun violence in the US. What are you going to do, outlaw knives as well?

@J McCoy Sure it will. However, it's pretty easy to buy a firearm illegally off the streets.

Thank you Dr Liao and your team for all you do. There will never be enough gratitude and "Thank Yous." I can't imagine what yourself and your colleagues feel after such a tragedy. Not only today, but everyday. God bless you all and stay safe.

Proud of my fellow healthcare workers! The pandemic might have highlighted the level of physical, mental and emotional sacrifice we all go through, but this type of trauma, both expected and unexpected, happens day in and day out. It's unfair that some of us have become numb to certain situations because of how much we have to deal with them everyday. But having children's lives on your hands hits different. They haven't experienced and won't see all the great things that life has to offer (that's why I don't have enough mental and emotional strength to work in pediatrics). Much love and respect to these healthcare heroes in Texas.

As a previous trauma surgery assistant hearing the calls coming over the intercom and rushing to get rooms prepared for pediatric patients is always tough on any team. Every medical personnel will carry this forever standing in heated trauma rooms waiting to heal. I am no longer in the medical field but there are so many patients and families that I’ll always remember😢

Watching those tears roll down her face really made me feel her emotion as well. She was fighting and holding back a lot more tears.

Her breaking down just goes to show how long she has been holding it in for the parents. People can only take so much till they breakdown. My heart breaks for this doctor and the staff that had to go through all of this. And to the parents that lost their child I couldn’t even fathom that. My heart hurts for all those families.

If possible I would like to give Dr. Lillian Liao and her trauma team a standing ovation. What tremendous stamina and skill to handle such a horrific event that will continue for them (like she said) 24 hours at a time. Day after day working with these little people and with parents who no doubt feel so helpless. Jesus bless every person involved with this doctor and her facility.

@Dewi Lew Hi Dewi--I love your comment. In my mind I was thinking 'if it were possible for me to physically be on location' to give a standing ovation. So hey....I just stood and gave a resounding applause to these people right here in my living room. Not one person stopped me!! Thank you!!

@Playfulpanthress They are both needed and both available if we pray and lobby. I believe in doing both. Surely it was not a common transfer to that gun store to have an 18 yo kid purchase $3000 in assault weapons plus ammo online and pick it up at his store. Did he walk home with it or did someone drive him home? So many questions. You are right...we must have some gun law changes and prayer must cover all in our country. We are hurting.
