Summary Book Review The Orange Wire Problem and Other Tales from the Doctor’s Office :

Download or read book The Orange Wire Problem and Other Tales from the Doctor’s Office written by David Watts and published by University of Iowa Press. This book was released on 2009-04-01 with total page 206 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Western literature has had a long tradition of physician-writers. From Mikhail Bulgakov to William Carlos Williams to Richard Selzer to Ethan Canin, exposure to human beings at their most vulnerable has inspired fine writing. In his own inimitable and unpretentious style, David Watts is also a master storyteller. Whether recounting the decline and death of a dear friend or poking holes in the faulty logic of an insurance company underling, The Orange Wire Problem lays bare the nobility and weakness, generosity and churlishness of human nature. With disarming candor and the audacity to admit that practicing medicine can be a crazy thing, Watts fills each page with riveting details, moving accounts, or belly-laughs. As the stories in this work unfold, we are witness to the moral dilemmas and personal rewards of ministering to the sick. Whether the subject is the potential benefits of therapeutic deception or telling a child about death, Watts’s ear for the right word, the right tone, and the right detail never fails him. From The Orange Wire Problem and Other Tales from the Doctor’s Office: We were lingering in the outer office. He mentioned again, no biopsy. I knew that. And I knew there would be no chemotherapy. Maybe it's like that Orange Wire Problem, I said. Yes exactly, he said, and four years from now when we're all sitting around the campfire we'll remember the Orange Wire Problem. . . And I thought to myself, my brother did that. Spoke of the time ahead as he was dying of lung cancer. Six months from now he had said, we'll be glad we did all those drug therapies—as if to speak of the future laid claim to the future.

Summary Book Review The Language of Illness :

Download or read book The Language of Illness written by Fergus Shanahan and published by Liberties Press. This book was released on 2020-09-15 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The practice of medicine has advanced dramatically in recent years, but the language used to discuss illness – by medical practitioners, patients and carers – has not kept pace. As a result, clinicians and, just as importantly, patients and their relatives and carers, are not able to communicate clearly in relation to illness. The upshot is misunderstanding and confusion on all sides. In this ground-breaking book, Dr Fergus Shanahan, an eminent gastroenterologist who has practised in Ireland, the United States and Canada, and published widely around the world, looks at memoirs of illness, and outlines the lessons we can learn from a better understanding of the words we use to describe illness. He looks at the ways in which language can act as a barrier with regard to illness, and proposes practical ways in which we can dismantle these barriers. The book is written for the general reader: as Dr Shanahan puts it himself, he is “enough of an expert to be wary of experts”. The Language of Illness, part manifesto, part memoir, and part instruction manual, is an appeal for the use of clearer, more holistic language, by all those involved with, and affected by, illness. Like the great American poet-doctor William Carlos Williams, he aims to help us develop a new language by means of which we can develop a new way of living with illness – which is an integral part of the human condition. Put simply, it is a book for all those who care about caring.

Book excerpt: Changes in the healthcare field have threatened the once sacred relationship between patient and physician. While much has been written for physicians and other healthcare providers on the subject of the doctor-patient relationship, information tailored for patients remains lacking. This volume offers practical information to help patients make the most of their interaction with their doctors. Among the topics are finding the right physician, gaining telephone access, ensuring good communication between health care providers, protecting personal information, seeking a second opinion, and using walk-in clinics. In-depth interviews with primary care physicians and medical specialists provide a unique perspective on issues of importance to patients, from pediatrics to geriatrics.

But months later, the man robs the local bank of $200,000 and then disappears without a trace. The solution to the crime - and its twist - makes the story unforgettable.----The book's other short stories include "The Old Man on the Tee," about the death of a golfer. There's also the tale of an exciting encounter with a UFO, and a tiny man who becomes a shot putter on the American Olympic Track and Field Team. This unusual batch of stories takes readers on a fun ride.
