Outdoor sports enthusiast and extreme doctor Emmanuel Cauchy reveals here for the first time the perilous rescues he’s performed in the world’s most terrifying and unforgiving mountain climates. Known around the world as the “vertical doctor,” Emmanuel Cauchy gives stunning and terrifying accounts of his days as a rescue doctor on Mont Blanc, which rises more than 11,000 feet in the Alps along the French-Italian border. From snowy mountain peaks and deep mountain crevasses to the small confines of a helicopter high above—Cauchy’s job takes him where most of us can only imagine.

Using new scientific research pioneered on the mountainside in life-saving medical procedures, Cauchy’s dramatic mountain rescues will leave even the most seasoned reader, doctor, or outdoorsman astonished. Here are seventeen years spent in the air and on the ground in some of the world’s most unforgiving territory. His tales describe the extremes of both climate and human endurance and reverberate with the author’s unshakable love of life.

This is an uplifting, extraordinary, and moving book from a great humanitarian stuntman who spent his time literally living life on the edge.

You're a doctor 11 hours into your shift, and you've just walked into a waiting area packed with patients. There's an elderly man complaining of chest pain, a teenage girl whose arms are swollen with bee stings, and an ambulance bringing in two unresponsive kids from a car crash. What do you do next?

In Dr. Benaroch's 24 lectures, experience for yourself the high-stakes drama and medical insights of life in an everyday emergency department: the most intense department in any hospital and home to the kind of split-second decision making, troubleshooting, and detective work that can make the difference between a patient's life and death.

Every lecture brings you up close and personal with the common and uncommon medical crises that emergency doctors encounter throughout their careers. As you shadow Dr. Benaroch on his shifts and sometimes even venture off-site, you'll encounter patients coming in with a variety of symptoms and complaints - some of which are easily diagnosed and treated and some of which are more life-threatening than they first appear. At the heart of each case are powerful examples of:

How emergency doctors think on their feet How emergency doctors determine what's really wrong with a patient How emergency doctors rule in - or out - certain diagnoses How emergency doctors counsel patients and families on improving health

This is your opportunity to explore the adventure, mystery, and fascination of emergency medicine - and to discover why it's one of the most exciting and rewarding branches of medicine to work in.
