Item Details

An emergency medicine physician for nearly a decade, Dr. Pamela Grim has delivered babies, treated heart attacks, saved car accident victims, comforted the dying, and consoled the living who were left behind. She has worked all over the world, caring for victims of gang life in inner cities, victims of the war in Bosnia, poverty-stricken patients in Nigeria, and bank presidents in the United States. Relating these rich and varied experiences with compelling prose, Dr. Grim takes readers into the E.R. and lets them experience first-hand what it takes to make split-second, life-and-death decisions in the course of an average day. And with unflinching honesty, she conveys what its like to be a caring physician with one of the most demanding, exhilarating, frustrating, and rewarding jobs in the world. With an audience of 30 million, NBCs ER demonstrates how popular medical dramas are. That same audience will embrace this well-written collection of real-life tales from the Emergency Room. Medical nonfiction is a bestselling niche, as evidenced by Oliver Sacks An Anthropologist on Mars (Vintage, 1996) and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat (Touchstone, 4/98), and the works of Perri Klass. In addition to writing for the medical community, Dr. Pamela Grim has written articles about her experiences in the E.R. that Discover magazine published in its Vital Signs column.
