Edited and introduced by bestselling author Tilda Shalof, this is a collection of stories by 25 nurses about the highs and lows of ICU nursing, also known as critical care nursing. Intensive care nurses typically handle patients who have had major invasive surgery, accidents and traumas, or even multiple organ failure. These nurses care for patients whose lives hang in the balance, between life and death. This fascinating collection of stories allows us to peer over their shoulders to hear them speak with patients or provide life-saving care.
