Cambodian, US providers share ER experiences

U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Lawrence Decker, middle right, listens to a patient’s heart at the Phnom Penh Preah Ket Melea Hospital in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Jan. 25 during the Cambodia Medical Exercise 13-1. The Royal Cambodian Army providers wanted another professional opinion about the patient. “It is common amongst doctors to ask each other’s opinion on a diagnosis or treatment plan,” said Decker. “A good doctor recognizes he or she is not an expert on all aspects of the medicine, and we are always asking others to get help and a different perspective.” The U.S. service members will work alongside Royal Cambodian Armed Forces medical personnel during subject-matter expert exchanges to increase Cambodian and U.S. medical capability, capacity and interoperability. The U.S. and Cambodian armed forces have conducted medical exercises together since 2007. Decker is an emergency doctor with 3rd Medical Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 35, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, III Marine Expeditionary Force. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Alyssa N.
