Henry Marsh: Confesiones



epub online Confesiones – wpa8ball.co.uk

That morsel of honesty along with the one about doctors not liking anxious people because anxiety is contagious was humanizing to me I think s regular people who can t perform craniotomies regard surgeons of such caliber in an almost mystical sense that perhaps their intelligence and aptitude and income spare them or rather prevent them from being completely mortal That said mortality is the thread that ties this memoir together the running theme throughout the reason for it all The talk of fear and specifically the fear of dying made this book relatable and poignant The medical stuff was interesting and anyone who has an interest in brain surgery either from a professional or spectator standpoint would certainly enjoy this book But it was the honesty the writer in Doctor Marsh that made this memoir what it is I plan to go back and give this book a thorough read when I m back in a better reading groove It s been some time since I read Henry Marsh s wonderful and compelling memoir of his life in neurosurgery Do No Harm I had hoped to re read it prior to starting his new one Admissions but I didn t manage it I d ordered the book from Britain as it won t appear in Canada 学校では絶対に教えてもらえない超ディープな算数の教科書 until the fall of 2017 and I didn t want to wait I started it almost immediately Given the passage of time I do not know if my recollections of the first book are to be fully trusted but this new book feels very different Marsh stillite harshly and De cara (Spanish Edition) unforgivingly represents himself as an impatient irascible sometimes arrogant surgeon There is still the rigorousnflinching honesty particularly about himself and the medical errors and miscalculations he has made However his failings and regrets as a person particularly as a son a husband a father and as a human being are also sharply scrutinized I don t recall ماموریت برای وطنم uite so much of this in the first book I m also aware that I am a different reader from the one I was a few years back Maybe that s the differenceAs this second memoir opens Marsh is on the brink of retirement eager to be done and keenly aware than ever of the anxiety that he has long e Brain surgeon Henry Marsh s first book Do No Harm was one of my favorite reads of 2015 Admissions serves as a sort of seuel recording Marsh s last few weeks at his London hospital and the projects that have driven him during his first years of retirement woodworking renovating a derelict lock keeper s cottage by the canal in Oxford and yet neurosurgery on medical missions to Nepal and the Ukraine But he also ranges widely over his past recalling cases from his early years in medicine as well as from recent memory and describing his schoolin. O tan apasionante como el anterior el doctor Marsh retirado ya tras haber ejercido durante más de tres décadas enn hospital público de Londres comparte vivencias de su etapa de estudiante de los casos más impactantes de sus primeros años y también de su labor altruista en Nepal y Ucrania llevada a cabo en Pasando Páginas unas condiciones especialmente precarias Marsh desgranan episodio tras otro pintando The English Patient un fresco memorable den oficio colmado de incertidumbres y en el e a menudo el empeño por prol.

Should definitely be read as of a biography than as a continuation of his first book Do No Harm I found the stories of various operations both in the UK and Ukraine really interesting but found myself skipping over life in Nepal and the renovations to the house he decided to make over I won an ARC of this book in a Goodreads giveaway It s apparently due to be published in October of 2017 A bookmark that came with it rges me to include stmartinspress in my review so consider it doneYet another book where the title sums it Intriges in Irkoetsk Bob Evers up succinctly than I ever could Henry Marsh is indeed a brain surgeon presumably retired by now and this is actually his second volume of memoirs Do No Harm was the first The book was fascinating Marsh writes well with great candor and an eye for detail I have never been a surgeon of any description but have a newfound respect for the profession I had a vague idea as do probably most ofs informed by various movies and TV shows and so on over the years But thanks to this book I have a somewhat realis I have been in SUCH a reading funk since the holidays I literally have like three books going two lined Brgerliches Gesetzbuch BGB: mit Allgemeinem Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, Produkthaftungsgesetz, Unterlassungsklagengesetz, Wohnungseigentumsgesetz, ... und Erbbaurechtsgesetz up in my book bag three on hold I am struggling to finish reading ANYTHING I did not struggle with this book because it was bad or not written well In fact it was written surprisingly well for someone who is not first and foremost a writer I shouldn t be surprised by that Just because I m incapable of being good at both sciencemath stuff and readingwriting stuff doesn t mean other people can t be good at both The part in the preface about the kit endeared the author to me from the start The brain has always fascinated and scared me I m OCD to the max so I m not sure reading books by brain surgeons is productive or counterproductive to my compulsions seeing as any given day I m convinced I have a brain tumorbleedaneurysmetc You know what though Steady handed surgeons suffer from fear tooDoctors often get a bad rap for not having good bedside manners as opposed to nurses I assume and I m sure some of them have deserved that rap As someone who typically gets along better with and prefers to see nurse practitioners I ve been known to diss a doctor or two myself However I think Marsh through his candidness does an excellent job of fleshing out the stereotypical attribute out and flipping it on its head The moral challenge is to treat patients as we would wish to be treated ourselves to counterbalance with professional care and kindness the emotional detachment we reuire to get the work done The problem is to find the correct balance between compassion and detachment It is not easy.

G and his parents If I were being Under Fire: Great Photographers and Writers in Vietnam unkind I might say that this feels like a collection of leftover incidents from the previous book projectHowever the life of a brain surgeon is sondeniably exciting that even if these stories are the scraps they are delicious ones The title has a double meaning of course referring not only to the patients who are admitted to the hospital but also to a surgeon s confessions And there are certainly many cases Marsh regrets including operating on the wrong side in a trapped nerve patient failing to spot that a patient was on the verge of a diabetic coma before surgery and a young woman going blind after an operation in the Ukraine Often there is no clear right decision though operating or not operating could lead to eual damageOnce again I was struck by Marsh s trenchant humor he recognizes the absurdities as well as the injustices of life In Houston he taught on a neurosurgery workshop in which students created and then treated aneurysms in live pigs When asked Professor can you give On Sal Mal Lane us some surgical pearls he thought a little apologetically of the swine in the nearby bayndergoing surgery A year or so later discussing the case of a twenty two year old with a fractured spine he bitterly says Christopher Reeve was a millionaire and lived in America and he eventually died from complications so what chance a poor peasant in Nepal Although some slightly odd structural decisions have gone into this book the narrative keeps jumping back to Nepal and the Ukraine and a late chapter called Memory is particularly scattered in focus I still thoroughly enjoyed reading of Marsh s anecdotes The final chapter is suitably melancholy with its sense of winding down capturing not just the somewhat slower pace of his retired life but also his awareness of the inevitable approach of death Recalling two particularly hideous deaths he observed in his first years as a doctor he lends theoretical approval for euthanasia as a way of maintaining dignity ntil the endWhat I most admire about Marsh s writing is how he blends realism and wonder When my brain dies I will die I am a transient electrochemical dance made of myriad bits of information he recognizes But that doesn t deter him from producing lyrical passages like this one The white corpus callosum came into view at the floor of the chasm like a white beach between two cliffs Running along it like two rivers were the anterior cerebral arteries one on other side bright red pulsing gently with the heartbeat I highly recommend his work to readers of Atul Gawande and Paul KalanithiOriginally published with images on my blog Bookish Bec.
