Bill walked in to find the patient was amazingly awake and able to answer questions, despite having been shot through the neck not long before. As Bill examined Kalap, he discovered that, thankfully, the bullet didn't go through any major blood vessels, his spinal cord, bones or brain, which is one reason why he was awake. However, the bullet did go through his pharynx, which was going to create problems in the near future for the patient to be able to breathe.

Normally, Bill would stabilize the patient and then call Jim Radcliffe, our surgeon, and let him know of the need for establishing a better surgical airway (by putting a tube into his neck - a tracheostomy.) But on this Friday night, Jim was enjoying the last weekend he had with his kids and grandkids at Kugark, and so he wasn't available to help.
Bill considered sending the patient to a referral hospital in Mt. Hagen, but it was already dark and there was a chance nothing would be done in the night there, and so he decided to keep Kalap here, knowing that he might yet require a better airway.
In the next few hours, Kalap's neck swelled more and more from the effects of the gunshot wound; his breathing became more and more labored. Bill knew this man was going to die unless the doctors could get a better airway into him, so Bill took him to the operating room to see if he could be intubated or to try a cricothyrotomy (cutting a hole just below the adam's apple and putting a tube into the trachea to help him breathe).
...
Bill, David (our anesthetist), Vero (our scrub technician) and now I, were working to get everything ready to try and intubate him and, if necessary, to do the emergency cricothyrotomy.
