    This week on The Pulse, we take a look back at September 11th, 2001 and how that day has reverberated throughout so many lives, in so many ways. A lot of research was done in the years following the attacks, and one area of interest has been emergency responses—how do humans react in this kind of crisis when every moment counts? 

    Then, when you’re in your hospital room, you’re beseiged by the never-ending din of beeping monitors. An alarm is supposed to mean that something is going wrong, but a lot of times, that isn’t the case.
