Jim Down -  Life in the Balance - A Doctor’s Stories of Intensive Care

Life in the Balance offers a glimpse into the immense challenges and rewards of intensive care medicine, the effects on doctors’ mental health and the fragility of life. In these stories, Dr Jim Down brings us to the very heart of the intensive care unit. Down describes with equal honesty, humility and humour, the quietly heroic work of doctors and nurses on the ICU, a place which sits at the cutting edge of medical technology and where split-second decisions can make the difference between life and death.
