            A powerful, moving account of an intensive care doctor's life on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a doctor running the intensive care unit at one of London's top hospitals, Jim Down has spent his life working as healthcare's last resort, where the unexpected is always ...around the corner, and life and death decisions are an everyday occurrence. But nothing had prepared Jim and his team for the events of spring 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic descended. In Life Support, he tells the extraordinary month-by-month story of how as the nation came to a standstill, he and his colleagues donned PPE, received an unprecedented influx of patients, transformed their hospital and ultimately faced down the biggest challenge in the history of the NHS. The pandemic raised impossible questions for Jim- how do you fight a new disease? How do you go home at night to your wife and young children when you've spent all day around highly infectious patients? How do you tell a mother that her healthy young son has died, only days after falling ill? With warmth, honesty and humour, this book is a gripping, moving testament to the everyday heroism of the NHS staff in a global crisis, and an unforgettable insight into what was really happening in the wards as we clapped on our doorsteps.

            A world-renowned critical-care doctor offers hope for patients, their families, and the future of medicine in this timely, urgent, and compassionate work about the devastating and little-known physical and emotional effects of ICU stays. A world-renowned critical-care doctor offe...rs hope for patients, their families, and the future of medicine in this timely, urgent, and compassionate work about the devastating and little-known physical and emotional effects of ICU stays. As COVID-19 survivors are discharged from hospitals, grateful to be alive, most don't realise that the hardest part of their battle may be about to begin. Many will return home and struggle with long-term physical, mental, and emotional problems either caused or exacerbated by the life-saving treatment they received in intensive care. They'll join the ranks of critical-care survivors whose lives are completely upturned by a hospital stay. More than half of the patients admitted to ICUs will struggle with post-intensive care syndrome, which can include Alzheimer's-like cognitive deficits, PTSD, muscle and nerve damage, and depression. Their personal and professional lives can suffer irreparably. Worst of all, no one seems to understand that they have an illness at all. Not even their doctors. Dr Ely is now a leader in the field of ICU survivorship - advocating for compassionate care in the technology-driven enclave of the modern ICU - especially relevant during the coronavirus pandemic. In Every Deep-Drawn Breath, Dr Ely sounds a warning for the millions of people who will be admitted to ICUs in coming years and a wake-up call for healthcare professionals - himself included - to turn their gaze from the latest life-saving machines to really see, as he says, 'the person in the patient'.

            'Jim, they need you in bay 5. The young man's temperature has risen to 41.8.' 'Oh God' I muttered, adjusting the mask under my chin. I took three breaths in and out to check the seal. Air blew in to my eyes, so I adjusted the strap and squeezed the metal band tight around the bri...dge of my nose. 'Can you call his family?' I shouted to the nurse, as I pulled on the first set of gloves. 'And say?' 'Come in.' On 2nd January 2020, Dr Jim Down was chairing his weekly meeting with fellow intensive care doctors at University College Hospital London. Amidst the happy new year greetings and talk of sales shopping, one colleague mentioned news of a virus outbreak in Wuhan, China. By early March, Jim was frantically donning PPE to try to save the life of a healthy 28-year-old man who was dying of Covid-19. This diary is an eye-opening and deeply compassionate account of his day-to-day life on the frontlines of the pandemic.
