Publisher's Summary

In every hospital emergency department there is a room reserved for trauma. It is a place where life and death are separated by the thinnest of margins. A place where some families celebrate the most improbable of victories while others face the most devastating of losses. A place where what matters the most in this life is revealed.

Trauma Room Two is just such a place.

In this collection of short stories, Dr. Green takes the listener inside the hidden emotional landscape of emergency medicine. Based on 15 years of experience as an ER physician, he reveals the profound moments that often occur in emergency rooms for patients, their families, and the staff that work there.

a insightful book

Enjoyed the stories and how sometimes they went in different directions. I have a new found respect for our ER members and a wider understanding of what they and their families experience.

Too much descriptive narrative

I realize that good writers need to paint a picture but this book was like the author was trying to paint the Sistine Chapel! I got through 1 1/2 chapters but couldnt take any more of the writer describing the patient' soccer shirts and varsity letters. Way too much! Returned it for a refund so I could buy a book with substance, not creative writing class descriptions.

Entertaining Stories

The author is an ER physician, and this is a collection of unrelated stories about his experiences with patients. It is unclear to what extent the details in each case actually occurred or were embellished by the author for the sake of storytelling or protecting privacy. The author spends little time discussing the medical technicalities of diagnosis, lab tests and treatment.

You have to read the whole book in order to appreciate it. I will probably read it again.
