Sintesi dell'editore

Recalling remarkable cases - and people - from a career launched in the first days of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Paul Seward leads us in his memoir through suspenseful diagnoses and explorations of anatomy. By his side, we learn to distinguish nursemaid's elbow from a true broken arm. We learn how our breathing and swallowing mechanisms resemble a practical joke. But when a baby's heart stops, and a young doctor forgets what to do, the situation is far from funny.

Within the conditions of great stress and rapid decision-making that are routine in the ER, Dr. Seward tells us that medical staff must be more than technicians of the body: They must be restorers of the human. Whether it is comforting anxious families or subjecting a distressed patient to tough procedures, they must learn the difficult work of caring for strangers. Throughout Patient Care, Dr. Seward reflects on how a life in medicine tests what it means to put ethics into practice.

Case studies that show we care...

An excellent exposition of various cases that have been treated by an ER physician, with failures as well as successes. Very well recounted, with good explanations and descriptions of the various team members. Once again, the narration would be clipping along, procedures smoothly and completely described, then—SCREECH!! A mispronounced word or three destroys the ambiance! The narrator is not the only one to be blamed: the producer, and especially the technical advisor, should be rebuked also! For the sake of all listeners, please- (PLEASE!) do some research on medical pronunciation! The book itself, and the stories recounted, is excellent! Highly recommend!

Loved this!

Brilliant production. Well narrated. Interesting chapters that could be stand alone short stories. Gripping stories. Will be enjoyed by medical professionals and amateurs alike. Wished it wouldn’t end.

Superlative medical stories

Each chapter a mini detective story of diagnosis and treatment. Well written and with enough detail.
