Über diesen Titel


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 Booklist:

How factual are such popular, reality-based television dramas as NYPD Blue or ER? Devotees of the latter will get an eye-opening critique from coauthors Ross, a screenwriter, and Gibbs, a practicing emergency room doctor. After a dramatic opening of their own in which the reader, shot in a carjacking, is saved on the operating table, the authors handicap the credibility of the characters seen on ER. Ross and Gibbs, who have no apparent connection to the show, rate its verisimilitude fairly highly, but they unhesitatingly slam the program's errors, condemning the character of heartthrob actor George Clooney as having "the least in common with the real world of emergency medicine." On medical procedures, the authors delve into what various episodes have depicted about heart attacks, major trauma, and one Emmy-award winning C-section--which if performed in real life would have been malpractice! ("That's show biz," the authors shrug). Adding a last fillip of truth, they tabulate the huge bills various patients on the show would have incurred. Far more informative than the usual TV-oriented book, this snappily written (and soon to be heavily promoted) title is a welcome relief from the genre's fawning style. Gilbert Taylor
