Note: Presentation contains mild blood and guts pictures. Seriously.
My friend Evan lost a finger to a barracuda. Observing the entire course of his treatment, from emergency care to reconstructive surgery, was a great opportunity to observe the Cuban health service at work. The experience highlighted the differences between the care tourists experience (competent and lavish by Cuban standards) and the care most Cubans experience (competent but very bare bones).
When I presented this work I discussed most of my research orally and I was hesitant to post photographs here without extensive explanation. I’ve been asked repeatedly though, so here they are.
