    Rescue 471 by Peter Canning 4 5 Sequel to On the Front Lines of Medicines Rescue 471 gives an inside look into real world emergency medicine Peter Canning brings the reader along for the ride as if you were his partner Canning describes thrilling scenes and shares emotions while going through his daily routine Rescue 471 is the sequel to On the Front Lines of Medicine This novel is perfect for anyone interested in the medical field or someone wants to learn what a paramedic deals with on the job I recommend readers have a decent understanding of medical terms for which that could create some confusion, but if the reader has a grasp on the medical terms this book could be for all ages.The structure of this non fiction text is unique because the chapters are very short and straight to the point The chapters are all a different call that Canning has been on and can stand on their own This book is written as a narrative nonfiction with vocabulary that consists of a lot of medical terms and tools they use in the medical field This narrative has been mistaken for fiction because it does have some qualities fiction like a linear plot with...

    I always enjoy reading EMS type stories, and this time was no different I have read both of Peter Canning s books and I found them both an enjoyable read I feel like his perspective is akin to my own, as he left a career in public policy to become a paramedic, while I also work in public policy and moonlight as an EMT Essentially a collection of essays compiled into a book, it s not really a narrative so much as a work intended to convey the realities of what faces the modern EMS system Occasionally it tends toward the overly dramatic, perhaps reaching too far to try to make the connection between a particular story and what is says about the human condition However, the point is well m...

    This was a quick and enjoyable read that touched a personal note for me, since the author works in my home country of Hartford This book just showcased some of the worst things about a city so close to my town the drugs, gangs, violence, poverty obesity, child abuse I know many other places see these things too, but it seems in CT these things are sadly so common that the problems go ignored the stories in this book show this a drunk heroin ad...

    A collection of short stories about what it is like to be a Paramedic Peter Canning tells about the calls and what he is thinking and what is going on with the patient They are raw, sad and sometimes gross stories Very few of them has a follow up on what happen to the patient after they are dropped off at the hospital I would have lik...
