Customer Reviews
<p><b>A brilliant and courageous doctor reveals, in gripping accounts of true cases, the power and limits of modern medicine.</b></p><p>Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is -- complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human. </p><p>Atul Gawande offers an unflinching view from the scalpel's edge, where science is ambiguous, information is limited, the stakes are high, yet decisions must be made. In dramatic and revealing stories of patients and doctors, he explores how deadly mistakes occur and why good surgeons go bad. He also shows us what happens when medicine comes up against the inexplicable: an architect with incapacitating back pain for which there is no physical cause; a young woman with nausea that won't go away; a television newscaster whose blushing is so severe that she cannot do her job. Gawande offers a richly detailed portrait of the people and the science, even as he tackles the paradoxes and imperfections inherent in caring for human lives.</p><p>At once tough-minded and humane, <i>Complications</i> is a new kind of medical writing, nuanced and lucid, unafraid to confront the conflicts and uncertainties that lie at the heart of modern medicine, yet always alive to the possibilities of wisdom in this extraordinary endeavor.</p><p><i>Complications </i>is a 2002 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.</p>

Our detailed advice, based on evidence from research in the field and perspectives of admissions faculty, will provide you with the insiders' perspective. Inside-<br /><br />How can you best prepare for the MMI?

A 34-year-old man fighting for his life in the Intensive Care Unit is on an artificial respirator for over a month. Could it be that his chance of getting off the respirator is not how much his nurses know, but rather how much they care?<br /><br />A 75-year-old woman is heroically saved by a major trauma center only to be discharged and fatally struck by a car while walking home from the hospital. Could a lack of compassion from the hospital staff have been a factor in her death?<br /><br />Compelling new research shows that health care is in the midst of a compassion crisis.<br />But the pivotal question is this: Does compassion really matter?<br /><br />In Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence that Caring Makes a Difference, physician scientists Stephen Trzeciak and Anthony Mazzarelli uncover the eye-opening data that compassion could be a wonder drug for the 21st century.<br /><br />Now, for the first time ever, a rigorous review of the science - coupled with captivating stories from the front lines of medicine - demonstrates that human connection in health care matters in astonishing ways. Never before has all the evidence been synthesized together in one place.<br /><br />You will see compelling evidence that:<br />- Compassion has vast benefits for patients across a wide variety of conditions<br />- Missed opportunities for compassion can have devastating health effects<br />- Compassion can help reverse the cost crisis in health care<br />- Compassion can be an antidote for burnout among health care providers<br />- 40 seconds of compassion can save a life<br /><br />After seeing all the evidence, the answer is crystal clear: Compassion matters...in not only meaningful but measurable ways.
