Book review of TerrO.R. by Dr. Joseph Neuschatz, ISBN10: 1-60145-015X, Booklocker.com Inc.
You go into a hospital for a procedure - you don't worry, do you? Should you?
I read this book when all my family and friends were healthy....
Dr. Joseph J. Neuschatz is certainly an expert in his field of Anesthesiology, and he uses that information and knowledge to give us a chilling book as scary circumstances evolve into more trecherous implications - I think Dr. Joe's premise is most original.
Dr. Philip Newman goes into work thinking it will be just another day in the O.R. - The anesthesiologist must talk to the patient and ensure there is nothing that the paperwork has missed that can cause a problem as they are operating.
Seems a young man is being forced to surgically remove tattoos he got while abroad - a routine procedure, but
something strange is happening - normal operational procedures and the monitors start going crazy! anything out of the ordinary in Pre-op? no - Anything different from the normal anesthesia? not, but the patient - CODE BLUE! Get the Crash Cart in STAT! - after tirelessly working on the young man, the patient is dead.
When the boy's father is told of his son's death, he is unusually calm and states for religious reasons he doesn't want an autopsy..
But, here comes a sizable suit for malpractice!
When other deaths start happening in similar circumstances, Dr. Newman networks with fellow doctors - and they come upon a new means of terror -
A critical look at the medical system, and all the ways we as a people are vulnerable. A small book with important ideas that will make you keep taking those massive doses of vitamins and B-12 shots!
The face of terror can be anywhere...
