"Emergency SalvageTM" is a term to describe heart surgeons' attempts to salvage patients who are actively dying from cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans.
Both nonfiction and fiction, this book describes author LSC M.D.'s struggles over a thirty-year period in caring for dying patients. It was written for readers who are only lightly educated about healthcare.
