Luka has a bereavement response to his kids dying, in that he feels guilty. He therefore tries to compensate this by saving all the kids he can. impossible task - i wonder what his response would be if a kid died on him in the ER? He would probably have to be carried out screaming. They have given this character to Luka as they want him to get it on with Carol. Consider this - in the real world, what man, especially a tall good looking man, would go after a woman who has just had twins! all that responsibility and little time and energy for fun. However, Luka with his passion for children is attracted to a mother of twins, so this is how it all ties in. That's tv, if only real life were so lovely!

I guess it would have to do with his life in Croatia. He told Kerry that he had lost his wife and kids during the war. So I guess whenever he sees children dying or being hurt, he feels compassion and obligation to do something maybe because he could have saved his family from being separated to him only if he could.
