Practicing them so much that they become second nature and no longer require thinking.

About the Author
Dr Dilhan Perusinghe
CT3 Emergency Medicine
Having started his higher education in Medical Engineering, Dr Perusinghe found himself changing his focus from numbers, to people, from a world of building, design and machines, to a lifetime dedicated to one marvelous machine.
He first worked in a busy emergency department at a trauma centre in the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW). After working in this team full of efficient, fun and sometimes crazy people, he knew there was no possibility of return to the mundane.
He progressed through his ACCS training and is currently working in his ST3 year as a Paediatric Emergency Department doctor in University Hospital Lewisham.
