9780060977320: The Medicine of Er: Or, How We Almost Die

This work gives an insider's account of the world of the emergency room - and the medical facts behind the fiction. It includes such details as: the language of the emergency room; ER techniques you can practise on yourself; the emergency rooms of the rich and famous, revealing where film stars, presidents and gangsters go when they need emergency treatment, and how they are kept hidden from the public gaze.

From the Back Cover:

'The Medicine of ER ' gives an insider’s view of the most true to life medical television series ever made. From ‘crikes’ to ‘crash carts’, it takes us behind the rapid cuts – both those of the camera and those of the scalpel – to enhance our understanding of the heroics and the heartbreak that fill every episode of this phenomenally popular programme.

From the paramedics Shep and Reilly, to the physician’s assistant Jeanie Boulet, to the nurses Carol, Malik and Haleh, and all the doctors, this book lets you know whether their on screen actions make real sense, or just riveting TV drama. 'The Medicine of ER' shows us what is wrong with Peter Benton flitting between the ER and the surgical department. And why John Carter by now would have been banned from every emergency room in America.

Here is everything dedicated viewers will want to know, including bloopers from the series, clear explanations of how ER doctors make their rapid diagnoses and step by step recreations of the medical decisions and procedures from some of ER’s most gripping episodes. Follow the authors through the doors of the ER, and you will see the show as you have never seen it before.
