TRUE Emergency Room Stories
by Kevin Pezzi, M.D.
184 pages, 6" x 9"
Available in trade paperback, e-book, and excerpted on
What really goes on in emergency rooms? If you're a fan of
the television show ER, you might think that you know. Not so,
asserts Kevin Pezzi, M.D., an ER doctor and author of True
Emergency Room Stories. Pezzi says the show ER only scratches
the surface; the truth is far more interesting — and bizarre. So bizarre,
in fact, that the cases could shock even an experienced ER physician. "I'm
now a firm believer in the saying that truth is stranger than fiction," he says.
"I don't think that anyone could dream up such unusual stories."
Pezzi's book is packed with nothing but unusual stories. There are no "the
patient's in v-tach, shock 'em with 200 J and give 'em 100 mg of lidocaine,
stat" type of cases. While such cases are a mainstay of the show ER,
Dr. Pezzi believes that they quickly become repetitious. Instead, he
presents an amazing collection of true stories. The book begins with a
story of how he may have saved Michael Jackson's life by averting an
assassination attempt by a person who claimed to be a Cosmopolitan cover
model, and ends with an interesting tale of how he was propositioned on a beach
by a relative of a recent ER patient. In between, he recounts stories of
unusual murders and other crimes, truly odd reasons for dialing 911,
unfathomable reasons for visiting the ER, and people with an extraordinary
affinity for their pets. Then there's a shocking end to a pregnancy, a
twisted tale of revenge that would be a spellbinding plot for a movie, and the
story of a man who attempted to remove his liver at home.
In this book, you'll accompany Dr. Pezzi as he meets the world's unluckiest man
and woman, deals with people who have strange requests, and attends to a bride
whose genetic disorder wasn't discovered until her wedding night. There is
also the story of the man who didn't know that he had been shot in the head, and
the case of the pit bull who picked on the wrong person.
True Emergency Room Stories has something for
everyone. Besides the strange cases, readers will be captivated by dozens
of incredible, tragic, humorous, steamy, heartwarming, thought-provoking, and
ContactMeFree is a dream
come true for anyone involved in online dating. If you have your profile
posted on a personals site but don't pay for a membership, you know how
limited you are in terms of being able to send or receive messages. You
probably assume that those limitations disappear if you pay for a
membership. Guess what? You are still far more limited than you realize.
Frankly, if you knew how limited you were, you would be furious that the
personals site was charging you $20 to $50 per month and still keeping the
shackles on you! The person who created
ContactMeFree was so
outraged by those limitations that he decided to do something about it. So
