ENLARGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE ABOUT PULMONARY MEDICINE
The lung has 90 sq meters of surface area- enough to cover a tennis court. Dark, wet, & rich with nooks, here bacteria & foreign debris are inhaled, trapped & left to fester. A larger surface area exists in the mind of a clever respiratory therapist.
How would this therapist react if his twin’s murderer entered his sphere of medical practice in the very first chapter, this perpetrator a free man because of a legal technicality? What if for nine years the therapist had waited-idle in his suffering-visualizing all the ways to bring retribution should the moment arise? Nick Fuller has always promised himself that if this perp were admitted to a bed on a floor to which he was assigned – it is fate that he should kill him.
Nick’s fuse is lit when he sees his twin sister’s murderer in a wheelchair roll right past him. An unconsidered possibility exists in his blind rage. This spark of wrath could become a wildfire for nothing is more infectious than an idea without boundaries.
Touch the world of advanced practice medicine where one overvalued thought can morph into megalomania. Are we all just one idea from being pompous and two from insanity?
A smug clinician, Nick is an informal leader and self styled Moses with both vast talent and practical bedside apps to match the attitude. The zenith of clinical and didactic competence, he champions advanced practice. Woe to the person that cannot stand his pace. To depart from the doctrine of Nick’s righteousness is to invite inquiry and scorn.
He has devised a number of LAWS concerning the LUNG which serve as an undefeatable code of conduct, a framework for clinical excellence and an overall explanation for the absurdities of medicine. He uses these pithy and at times sarcastic sayings for teaching. Nearly as often, he throws these fireballs as insults.
Beyond this, some other evil phenomenon is growing in Cincinnati Sinai Hospital, the explanations for which few might accept-if they were looking. For over two centuries, someone has been watching over the site where this new hospital stands. What answers can be found in the metaphysical blowback built into the very foundation of the medical center where germs, genius and stupidity labor side by side?
Discover the Cincinnati Sinai Hospital, where everyone has a secret. Witness murder most clinical and clever. Here you will see: Deceit. Humor. Betrayal. Professionalism. Character Assassination. Genius. Lung Sarcasm. Unleashed passion. Stupidity. Drama. Conceit. Here, Restrained Impulses and Paybacks are most cruel and full of glee.
LAW OF THE LUNG is the first of a six part book series. Deliberately crafted as a fast plot, HBO series styled medical-insider, this suspense-thriller is sure to please. Here, fiction is dipped in philosophy with vivid characters for the reader to live vicariously through. All truths and beliefs shall be tested in the maelstrom coming in books 4, 5 and 6 as those who work in the medical professions must decide for themselves the meaning and impact of luck, time, cure, disease, suffering, fate and what may come after that. Books 1,2,3 are substantive, featuring character development, with riser plots and real discussion of the practice of the pulmonary sciences.
The Cincinnati Sinai Series. Highly visual, dialogue rich, it is as ribald as it is cynical. It explains the technicals and frontiers of pulmonary medicine. It expands outward as the books go forward into the realms of nursing, physicians and a reimbursement system that is struggling to survive. All of this is set in a real world scenario, the year 2025 when Medicare cuts will arrive in full force.
Between then and now humanity has passed through a worldwide catastrophe. As said before two more catastrophes are brewing, their impacts coming in the later books in the series.
These witty and nimble thrillers are intended for three main reading groups: the medically trained clinician, avid medical genre reader and those who actually live the diseases described here, the COPDers and asthmatics who wonder what goes on in corridors just outside their politely shut hospital door.
This series is written by a 38 year, highly experienced ICU based Respiratory Care Practitioner, instructor and lecturer. He lectures at seminars and is sharing ONLY terms and analysis of his own making. Over the decades, some of his medical jargon and cynical terminology have made their way into common use at a national level. Far more than these, Frank has stored up lifetime of never shared descriptors and pulmonary slang sure to make you laugh and cringe while you learn the intricacies of the lung and the staff who work the ICUs.
Caution: Several episodes of disturbing imagery involve murder. Infrequent strong language. Several inferred sexual references, one semi graphic event.
