Christie’s second-cousin is a retired physician. He is Dr. Larry Miller of San Antonio, TX. He is a gracious and kind man who has lived a full and adventurous life.
One of his many contributions to the world is his invention of a sort of medical drill for inserting an IV. It’s called the EZ-IO. Wikipedia says about the EZ-IO that, “It is used by 90 percent of US advanced life support ambulances and over half of US Emergency Departments , as well as the US Military, and is available in over 50 countries worldwide.” I think it’s available in space, too.
A few months ago, Larry and his company donated drills and needles and hands-on training and took his invention to Haiti for the first time. Here’s what it looked like.
