REVIEW Ï Fragile Lives An incredible memoir from one of the world’s most eminent heart surgeons and some of the most remarkable and poignant cases he’s worked onGrim Reaper sits on the heart surgeon’s shoulder A slip of the hand and life ebbs awayThe balance between life and death is so delicate and the heart surgeon walks that rope between the two In the operating room there is no time for doubt It is flesh blood rib retractors and pumping the vital. This is one of those books of medical true life stories but is technical than most By the end I knew a great deal of the structure of the heart blood chemistry and why making lots of pee is extremely important The author is a very forthright sort of man and a very empathetic one too The people he operates on he describes in detail I felt for him when he lost a patient I rejoiced with him when his inventions kept people alive And I held my breath when he operated on a pregnant woman to repair her heart as by now I knew enough of technical details of such operations to appreciate just how difficult it was to put a woman on a heart lung machine and keep the foetus who is not on the machine at all aliveIn the epilogue he castigates the National Health for publishing the death rates of individual heart surgeons people are now frightened away of the speciality leaving the field open to foreign surgeons Operating on extremely ill people who will die without the operation means that some will not survive anyway And surgeons that take on the most difficult of cases are going to have higher losses than those who routinely replace heart valves in patients who are merely at risk The BBC made a tv programme Your Life in Their Hands and one of the uestions asked was one Americans will never be able to appreciate It was whether the NHS should spend a fortune on keeping a 20 year old heart patient alive The author answered it by saying should a first world country not spend the money and let the patient die in misery as in third world countries He could have added or in those first world countries that won t pay for its citizens to have these extraordinarily expensive operations with pumps or other implants that can cost as much as a fancy car If the country won t pay and the patient can t it really puts that country and the third world ones that can t pay on the same level doesn t it School for Startups from one of the world’s most eminent heart surgeons and some of the most remarkable and poignant cases he’s worked onGrim Reaper sits on the heart surgeon’s shoulder A slip of the hand and life ebbs awayThe balance between life and death is so delicate and the heart surgeon walks that rope between the two In the operating room there is no time All the Plants of the BibleText and Illustrations for doubt It is Fucking My Gullible Sister in Her Virgin Pussy flesh blood rib retractors and pumping the vital.

REVIEW Ï Fragile Lives Remarkable and poignant cases – such as the baby who had suffered multiple heart attacks by six months old a woman who lived the nightmare of locked in syndrome and a man whose life was powered by a battery for eight yearsA powerful important and incredibly moving book Fragile Lives offers an exceptional insight into the exhilarating and sometimes tragic world of heart surgery and how it feels to hold someone’s life in your hands. This bookugh I really wanted to like it and honesty thought I would I loved When Breath Becomes Air and thought this might be similar Not so much The author is a retired heart surgeon in the UK so a lot of the commentary about their healthcare system NHS felt disconnected to me It was very technical and explained medical procedures in great overly excessive detail and I skimmed through some of these descriptions My biggest complaint about the book however is the fact that Westaby just isn t a writer and has little concept of grammatical conventions Every other sentence was a fragment and it just became exhausting to read Many reviews complain about the arrogance of the author and truth be told I didn t mind that part I actually want a surgeon to be a little arrogant about his abilities but on the flip side I want an author to be aware of basic conventions of writing 月下夢幻譚神無夜話 4 feels to hold someone’s life in your hands.

REVIEW Ï Fragile Lives Organ with your bare hand to sueeze the life back into it An off day can have dire conseuences – this job has a steep learning curve and the cost is measured in human life Cardiac surgery is not for the faint of heartProfessor Stephen Westaby took chances and pushed the boundaries of heart surgery He saved hundreds of lives over the course of a thirty five year career and now in his astounding memoir Westaby details some of his most.
