Seven Signs of Life
3 journalers for this copy...
Enjoyed this. A compassionate while being realistic (a different balance to tread!) account of stories from working in Intensive Care. I liked the short stories, found it easy to read and free from overly-medical language.

This a magnificent record of daily life in the Intensive Care Unit through the eyes of a Doctor.
I was hesitant about reading this as I am very squeamish. But there were not many gory details, this was more about training and what you did - and did not/ could not learn at Medical School. It is about the various gamut of emotions that assault the Trauma Team head on. This cannot be taught. It is about being Clinical and not letting hurt, distress or fear or hope to interfere with delivering the best possible care .
It made me step back and although I have always respected Doctors, Nurses, Consultants and all NHS staff, I reached another level and our NHS is truly awesome.
I really recommend this fantastic record from an internal perspective.

Received in the post today from KirstyKat. Thanks very much-looks like my very favourite kind of book! As I’ve actually experienced intensive care nursing myself -on the receiving end of it- it will be an extra poignant and interesting read. Thanks also for the chocolate which will won’t survive for long 😀😀.

REVIEW:-"Although I did enjoy this book it was not what I expected it to be. I found it very intense and maybe a little over-intellectual for my taste. It was very deep at times and dealt with feelings and emotions rather than on specific cases as in other medical themed books I've read in the past. It brought back memories of my own time spent in intensive care and it was very interesting to hear how an intensive care doctor survived the major traumas thrown at them on a daily basis.
I actually found I had to read the book in instalments to be able to deal with it."
Reserving for another bookcrosser.
