The Knife and Gun Club: Scenes from an Emergency Room
by Eugene Richards
Publisher's Description
One of Richards' most poignant works, this book is a journey into the daily drama of life and death in a big-city emergency room. The stark and often harrowing scenes are accompanied by quotations by those who work in the emergency room every day. "When your heart stops first, you still have some cognitive activity up in the brain and your hearing's probably the last sense to go. So when we're working on a cardiac arrest and know they're not going to be saved, I like to lean down and whisper goodbye. I mean, imagine how scared they must be."--Norm Dinerman, paramedic.
