Library Journal Review

Emergency! presents life and death vignettes culled from emergency rooms across the country, as told by doctors and nurses in their own words. Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, it reflects the full range of human behavior in both patients and staff, often under extreme duress. The editor, himself an ER physician, offers the reader brief glimpses into the controlled chaos that is the modern emergency room, in no particular order since, as he says, that's the way the patients come in. You never know what's coming through the door. As the popular TV series ER and Chicago Hope demonstrate, there is an appetite for the drama inherent in emergency rooms. Moving, satisfying, and sometimes disturbing, this book is highly recommended. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/15/95.]‘Anne C. Tomlin, Auburn Memorial Hosp. Lib., N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010.
