Critical: Stories From the Front Line of Intensive Care Medicine
by Matt Morgan - £9.99 Simon & Schuster Ltd (2020) paperback
ISBN 13: 9781471173066 | ISBN 10: 1471173062
"Compassionate and moving… Morgan provides a rich array of stories and characters. Alongside the cases studies, he details the development of the medical practices and technology – from the iron lung to ultrasound – that have helped make such life-saving procedures possible." (Observer)
Journey into the world of intensive care medicine and the lives of people who have forever been changed by it.
There is no room for error in the ICU. Full focus is required at all times.
It can be the difference between life and death.
Through the remarkable stories of his patients, Dr. Matt Morgan guides you through the body and its organs. He explains how various critical conditions arise, and all that goes into treating them – from the science, research and technology, to the tireless efforts of the doctors and nurses.
This book gives you powerful insights about intensive care, many of which may prevent you, or those close to you, from ending up there. It will even teach you how to save a life.
Movingly and compassionately, Matt writes about the cases and the people that have stayed with him, both the recoveries and the losses. This book shows the fragility of life, but also the incredible resilience of the human body and spirit.
Sometimes darkness can show you the light.
