about

Written by an anesthesiologist, this insider’s account takes the reader on a journey that unveils the way hospitals work and offers important information about surgeries and the surgeons that perform them. Personal stories combine with staff experiences to reveal hidden truths about the operating room and illustrate the quirky, strange, and bizarre occurrences that shape a regular hospital day. Answering questions such as What do doctors talk about during surgery? If a surgical instrument falls to the floor, is the five-second rule observed? and Is real life just like ER, Grey’s Anatomy, and House?, this is a must-read for the curiosity seeker and anyone who has or will be on the operating-room table.
Paul Whang, MD, is an anesthesiologist and a hospital consultant. A graduate of the University of Toronto, where he won the Thomas-Kendrick Gold Medal in pharmacology, and of the McMaster Medical School, he has been in practice for more than 15 years. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.
