Now on Kindle: Think Twice: More Lessons from the ER

An ounce of prevention is better than 6 hours stuck in the ER. Read and learn from the mistakes of others (with a laugh here and there). Here are over 100 things not to do unless you want to end up as a patient in the ER. Like the Worst Case Scenario Handbook only more practical. Like The Darwin Awards only more common.  If you work in the ED you probably know all of this, but your friends and family probably don’t; tell them about this book so they can avoid a visit to the ED from injury or illness, rather than come to you for advice afterwards.

THIS BOOK COULD PREVENT PAIN AND SUFFERING OR EVEN SAVE THE LIFE OF SOMEONE YOU LOVE.

Think Twice in Top 50 books of 2012

Well, maybe I exaggerated a bit, but it is in the Top 50 Must-Read Books for Nurses in 2012

While this may be a sometimes humorous account of true stories from the ER, it also reminds us that one bad decision could change our lives. The book is full of pictures, important phone numbers, and a chart with normal vital signs and lab values as well as a schedule for adult vaccinations and cancer screening tests.

Caveat Doctor: be skeptical of what you read

We all know medical research can be biased, especially when it is funded by a company that is selling something, but conflicts of interests are caused by more than just financial greed.  There are many other factors influence the so called “results” that medical research produces and brings to our attention.  One huge one is due to the need to “publish or perish” faced by many academicians.  For a healthy dose of skepticism read the article at the link below.
