His hospital was one of the central hospitals to receive and treat the majority of the victims from the airport and metro attacks.
Dr Jennes describes his initial emotional reaction at learning of a mass casualty incident so close to home and the need to rely on his military experiences from Afghanistan in the clinical management of these trauma patients.
