A man lies unresponsive in the front seat of a crashed car.

Connie Carson-Romano rushes to help, acting on instinct as she and an emergency medical technician attempt to save his life.

The man doesn't live but the experience changes Carson-Romano forever, prompting her to become an EMT. Now she gives readers an up close look at her adventures in emergency medicine in her memoir, The Other Side of the Gurney.

After twenty years working as an EMT and paramedic, Carson-Romano becomes a registered nurse specializing in critical care. She shares what it's like to be an "accidental hero" and offers these stories as a tribute to those invited into people's homes and lives during the most frightening times imaginable. Carson-Romano crafts her stories with compassion and humor while covering a wide range of experiences, including childbirths in dramatic situations, traumatic accidents, and patients nearing the ends of their lives.

The sad, funny, and feel good times are all here—and will make readers appreciate the emergency medical responders who risk their own lives to save ours.
