← A Key Series of Events Helped Giffords Survive a Gunshot Wound to the Head

The most important predictors for how well a victim will recover from a gunshot wound to the head are the type of bullet and its travel path once inside the brain.

They forgot to mention what is perhaps the most important predictor for survival - she was a Congresswoman!

Ordinary people - even with decent health insurance (which few can afford) - probably would not have received the same quality of care.
