Complications A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science Read & Download ☆ 104 Ly is uncertain perplexing and profoundly human  Complications is a 2002 National Book Award Finalist for Nonficti. Let s play the who wants to be horrified game Complications made it hard to sleep Not because of gore necessarily but because it made clear to me that doctors are just people who were given a scalpel Yes they have a ton of education but at some point they must get experienceIn one section Gawande discusses a procedure in which he must put in a central line which goes into a major vein in your chest which can technically kill you All he tells the patient is that he must put in a central line not that it is dangerous or that it is his first time doing this procedure I completely understand why he didn t tell the patient but that doesn t make it any less terrifying I have thought about how doctors have to start at some point but it was never so clear to me that there is a first patient for every procedure for every doctor For every surgeon there will be the first surgery There is a first time for cutting into the flesh of a still living personIt was published in 2002 so I m sure some things have changed but it s still current enough about how the training takes placeIt s an important realization of how much control doctors have over our bodies and how little they have over everything else in the hospital They don t get to chooseFor the full review please visit

Complications A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science Read & Download ☆ 104 In vivid accounts of true cases surgeon Atul Gawande explores the power and the limits of medicine offering an unfl. This book wss filled with about 25 anecdotes flimsily tied together by Gawande s less than inspiring reflections I have the book in front of me at the moment and I am paging through rereading sections that I noted along the wayI had come into residency to learn how to be a surgeon I had thought that meant simply learning the repertoire of move and techniues involved in doing an operation or making a diagnosis In fact there was also the new and delicate matter of talking patients through their decisions something that sometimes entailed its own repertoire of moves and techniues pg 217Next to this paragraph I had written NO SHITThe book is full of these minor pseudo epiphianic moments that come off as weak aphorisms However given the audience of this book everyone he does well to treat people about how uncertain medicine really is and how it really comes down to the tricky nature of making decisions and how they should be made in the medical settingBut the conundrum remains if both doctors and patients are fallible who should decide We want a rule And so we ve decided that the patients should be the ultimate arbiter But such hard and fast rule seems ill suited both to a caring relationships between docotr and patient and to the reality of medical care where a hunderred decisions have to be made uickly The doctor should not make all of these decisions and neither should the patient Something must be worked out between then one on one a personal modus operandi Where many ethicits go wrong is in promoting patient autonomy as a kind of ultimate value in medicine rather than recognizing it as one value among othersAs the field grows ever complex and technological the real task isn t to banish paternalism the real task is to preserve kindness pg 223 4This simply makes sense nothing new hereThe best part of the book is the last two paragraphs and is all you really need to read have said that you have read the book in my opinionThe possibilities and probabilities are all we have to work on within medicineWhat we are drawn to in this imperfect science what we in fact covet in our way is the alterable moment the fragile but crystalline opportunity for one s know how ability or just gut instinct to change the course of another s life for the better In the actual situations that present themselves however we can never be sure whether we have such a moment or not Even less clear is whether the actions we choose will prove either wise or helpful That our efforts succeed at all is still sometimes a chock to me But they do Not always but often enough pg 251 2In a way the whole thesis of this book which I think is summed up in the sentence in bold above is pretty remarkable There is so much talk about the fallibility and humanity in medicine right now fallibility is so hot right now However as is apparent in this book the medical community is only at the stage of recognizing this fallibility Gawande doesn t do what I thought he would suggest what we should do given the increase visibility of the fallibility of the practice of medicine He really doesn t have any good ideas In all his articles he seems to be advocating a technocratic answer using checklists etc The biggest problem I have with the book is the way Gawande seems to view the profession medical community of independently acting people who in the aggregate are not too of an impressive lot In this Gawande is entirely old school He fails to recognize the possibility of alternative ways to approach patient care In a way I think that he is dangerously anecdotal Maybe it is just me being tired of reading anecdotal medical non fiction but it just seems like a lame format don t hold these words against me because I really don t know what I am looking for or what type of book I would write He treats them like data points I believe that the book could be reduced by about 80% for someone like you or I who are as far in the medical field as we are However I believe there to be value within this book I am really really happy that millions of people future patients are reading books like this and Groopman s How doctor s think as it really does educate them to get real about what medical care is all about It will serve to empower people and get them involved in their care and think about how they want it to go down But to me I really did expect a lot from this guy The reviews that it got are ridiculous they are way over the top It is pretty incredible it goes to show how easy it is to be heard once you have written for the New Yorker and got a MD from Havard I will keep reading his books though for no other reason than that he is so hot right now millions are reading him I at least have to know other people are thinking about

Complications A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science Read & Download ☆ 104 Inching view from the scalpel’s edge Complications lays bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actual. I finished this book about a week ago and the next day my mom fell and f % broke her hip So this is NOT the type of book to read or even think about when you have someone in the hospitalMost doctors especially surgeons are viewed as infallible but in reality they are just like us They have bad days they make mistakes and some of them should really change careersThe author writes elouently with compassion and a clear love for surgery which made this a fascinating book to delve into Most of the stories felt anecdotal rather than a deep dive into the details which for a layman like me was perfectThe author also poses a lot of ethical uestions about the profession and how much patient autonomy should be allowed when making health decisionsIf you have any interest in medical memoirs you should try this author at least once
