The most universal life lesson I learned as an EMT was that "in a crisis situation, you revert to your level of training." If you don't know what you are doing, no amount of concentration will save you.

I was in ocean rescue, I know what you mean. The neat thing about being in/near emergency services is the amount of training and practice that happens behind the scenes.

Almost like... setting up intentional time to get good so our autopilot works better than not.
