By Brenda Pink TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 18 2010
Format: Paperback
This self-published book is an amazing insight into the life of an anaesthesiologist. It is also a frightening look into the possibilities of what can go wrong during surgery. Some of the secondary storylines could ahve been developed more, as I found myself wanting more from certain paths in the storyline. Also, as happens often with self-published books the proofing was lacking. I'm a fast reader and found myself stumbling on some sentences, like I was tripping over my feet. Going back to re-read the sentence revealed a typo. Once this started happening frequently, I was able to just skim past those errors, but it was a little distracting to the experience. These issues are why I rated the book at 3 stars. However, the author definitely has potential and I'd like to see more from him. Nice to read books in the medical thriller category that are actually written by someone in the business! The book is a very quick read, taking me only 3 bedtimes to finish, and highly recommended for those who like this genre. I do agree with one other reviewer in that it would have been nice to have a glossary of medical terms, but unlike him, I knew just enough of the terms and didn't feel it detracted from the story. I will, from now on, approach surgeries with a much different eye!

Format: Paperback
Dr. Neuschatz has written a very intriguing novel about the the life of an anethesiologist Dr. Phillip Newman and his wife Kyra who is a pediatric nurse. Due to a serious unexpected death in the Operating Room, the story takes some unusual twists and turns which no reader can anticipate. There is a major surprise ending that will satisfy any reader of medical mystery thrillers. Dr. Robin Cook may be the more experienced novelist and best selling author but Dr. Neuschatz provides an equally thrilling reading experience. His book contains a highly contemporary theme which will leave a huge impact on the reader at the end. Furthermore, while the book explores a serious subject, there is much humor in the book, making it quite fun to read.

Unfortunately and unexpectedly, one of Dr. Phillip Newman's patients codes during surgery while he is being administered anesthesia and subsequently dies. It is a young man who is 19 years old who elects to have surgery to remove some tattoos. He had no allergies, no significant medical history and of note, no previous surgeries (therefore never had general anesthesia either). Suddenly, Dr. Newman is faced with a huge lawsuit for malpractice ... The hospital wants him to settle out of court. Although, Dr. Newman is reassured by his colleagues that this is how it is in modern medicine, it bothers him and he begins to research possibly causes for this most unfortunate death. Despite being reassured, that any physician can expect this in a highly litigious society (such as ours), he does not accept this explanation. Dr. Newman starts asking probing questions, what could have gone wrong? What special factors were over-looked? He arrives at some startling conclusions after he takes on the role of scientist and epidemiolgist.

Format: Paperback
Nope, not that kind of gas - according to this story "gas passer" is the name affectionately given to practicing anesthesiologists by members of their profession, and although fictional, the story contains lots of frightening behind the scenes information that you should know (or maybe not) before having an operation.

When a young man undergoing a routine procedure doesn't survive the operation, the anesthesiologist is hit with a lawsuit, and rather than conduct an investigation, the powers that be decide to settle out of court to avoid further repercussions. The end result is that the patient is still meeting his maker, the family collects the money, the hospital survives another day and the anesthesiologist pays a lot more money in malpractice insurance.

This could be the end of the story, but the anesthesiologist in question decides to conduct his own investigation, and by comparing notes with others of his profession via the internet, he discovers that there's a lot more going on than bad gas passing.

Written by an anesthesiologist (I hope not to have to type that word again in this review), the story is packed with medical references and information, and although the plot is good, it loses some of its impact in the telling. This is an intriguing look into the work of the largely unsung gas passers, and with a little editing it would have been a much better story. Rated 3.5 stars

THIS FIRST NOVEL IS IMPRESSING WITHOUT BEING PERFECT.

WHEN PATIENTS DIE UNEXPLAINABLE IN OPERATING ROOMS, WHEN MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAW-SUITS START, A NEW YORK ANESTHESIOLOGIST BECOMES MEDICAL DETECTIVE. AFTER ELIMINATING, PHARMACOLOGICAL, PATHOLOGICAL, CHEMICAL AND OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES, HIS TIMELY DISCOVERY IS NOT ONLY SCARY, BUT ALSO SUPER CONCEIVABLE.

ON THE FRONT COVER A GOOD QUESTION: "FICTION ?"

I RECOMMEND THIS NOVEL.

Pour un premier livre, ce roman est impressionant, sans etre parfait. Quand des patients meurent sans explication dans les salles de chirurgie Americaines ("Operating Rooms" ou "O.R." aux Etats Unis), quand les proces de "responsibilite medicale" commencent, un anesthesiste New Yorkais devient detective. Ce qu'il decouvre fait domain de la realite, surement possible en Amerique et, (pourquoi pas ?) bientot possible ailleurs.

Sur la couverture, la question est bien posee: "FICTION ?"

Roman a lire.
