Synopsis

TRUE LIFE-AND-DEATH DRAMA

In taut, thrilling prose, Peter Canning has written a book that captures the rarely seen real world of emergency medicine. A seasoned paramedic who fights under enormous pressure to save lives, Canning trains new paramedics for the rigors of a nonstop, action-packed battle. From a four-month-old baby who has stopped breathing to a sixty-seven-year-old woman with a strange abdominal mass that threatens to explode--these are gripping true stories from the "ER on the streets." An exciting, often moving account, Canning tells a powerful story of camaraderie, selflessness, and courage as paramedics try to stand tall and human through both defeat and victory.

Good book
February 16th, 2013
A good look inside the daily life of a paramedic. It's 100% accurate in its highs and lows and periods of burnout. I personally like how it goes into exactly how frustrating the system can be for the front line practitioners when all we can do is our jobs to the best of our ability hoping that the people in power make good choices and do right by us, and more importantly do right by the patient.
