              The Angina Monologues: stories of surgery for broken hearts (EPUB ebook)

              By Nashef, Samer

              A pioneering cardiac surgeon expertly sews up the heart of surgery, the health of the nation, and the NHS. The Angina Monologues speeds from the transporting of a donor's heart up the motorway hard shoulder, to cautionary stories of excessive intervention gone awry in US hospi...tals, to a traumatic trip to bring advanced cardiac surgery to the Palestinian West Bank. Nashef tells heart-stopping stories of transplants, coronary artery bypasses, aorta repair, and cardiac arrest. He also delivers humane advice about medical realities rarely observed: the futility of obsessing over diet, the necessity of calculating risks, the role of decision making, the resilience of doctor and patient alike, and the threadbare brilliance of the NHS. Nashef is a magnificently warm and likeable doctor and writer; and he has the best imaginable bedside manner.

              By Nashef, Samer

              In the past two centuries, medicine has undergone a revolution. Not only do we have effective treatments; we also have at least some hard evidence that they actually work. But how well do those who treat us actually treat us? This book reveals how one surgeon can appear to be bet...ter than another by actually killing more patients; and more.
