Introduction

The developments that I think brought about Par�'s use of ointments to treat gunshot wounds were wars, challenges and also experimentation. I chose wars as an important development for one very good reason: they brought about the injuries. If it weren't for wars, barely anybody would get shot.

Middle

If they left the man to die they may have been rebuked for doing nothing for the man and their reputation would lay in tatters, whereas with experimenting, they would make a decision to at least try, for which they would surely get praise for. This forced Par� to try out his ointment, which became a great success. Lastly, I chose experiments as an important development. This is in some ways, grouped along with challenges. ...read more.

Conclusion

This soothed and healed the wounds far more effectively. In conclusion, I do not think any one of these developments could be seen as any more important than any other. For example, if we didn't have war, then we wouldn't have as much experimentation to find new cures; but then again, even with war, without experimentation and challenges the ointment would never have been invented, so all three points are immensely important. ?? ?? ?? ??
