One of the early doctors to specialize in emergency medicine reflects on a lifetime of casesand the ethical,scientific, and all-too-human complications that arose

"Dr. Seward's debut memoir,Patient Care, is a fascinating journey through a profession shrouded with mystery." Paul Ruggieri, MD, author ofConfessions of a Surgeon

Recalling remarkable casesand peoplefrom a career launched in the first days of the specialty of emergency medicine, Dr. Paul Seward leads us in his memoir through suspenseful diagnoses and explorations of anatomy. By his side, we learn to distinguish nursemaids elbow from a true broken arm. We learn how our breathing and swallowing mechanisms resemble a practical joke.

But when a babys heart stops and a young doctor forgets what to do, the situation is far from funny. Within the conditions of great stress and rapid decision-making that areroutine in the ER, Dr. Seward shows us that physicians must be more than technicians of the body; they must be restorers of the human. Whether it is comforting anxious family or subjecting a distressed patient to tough proceduresresulting, once, in a patients punching our doctoron every shift, a physician learns the difficult work of caring for strangers.

Yet this is a physician who rejects doctor-as-God narratives. He highlights the essential role of nurses and other colleagues, including a pharmacist whose story is hard to forget. ThroughoutPatient Care, Dr. Seward reflects on how a life in medicine tests what it means to put ethics into practice.
