Overview


The operating room is a world of human emotions that explode when patients close their eyes. Welcome to the dark side of this part of our hospitals. Doctor Jomeini is unaware of what awaits her now that she has chosen anesthesiology section of MIR in Madrid. To make matter even more complicated, everything in her life seems to be going against her. Her boyfriend has left her for another woman, she can’t find an apartment to live in, her work colleague looks like a Vogue magazine cover model, and she keeps making mistakes in the operating room. These and other issues are documented by her in her diary, which tells of how the anesthesiologist is more than just a person who passively stands in a back corner of the operating room. To be an anesthesiologist, one has to study hard to pass difficult tests and then carry out four years of residency work in a hospital. During said period, the resident doctor has to learn how to handle lungs, the heart and the brain with the skill of an orchestra conductor so as to prevent any complications that could arise during surgery. The anesthesiologist and the surgeon work in tandem in the operating room—a relationship that is sometimes very rocky and that can bring about unintended consequences, as is the case in this book. Doctor Jomeini decides to write a blog after her romantic break-up, which coincides with the beginning of her training as an anesthesiologist. As such, what is revealed is a mixture of professional and personal experiences and dilemmas, including ones that reveal the darker side of the operating room. In sum, the reader will get an intimate look at the failures, triumphs, and sentimental roller-coaster ride of the protagonist.

Meet the Author

Ana Gonz�lez Duque finished her study of medicine after having already won the first F�lix Francisco Casanova Prize for poetry in 1994 and the second Juventud y Cultura de Canarias Prize for poetry in 1995. The long hours of her medical residency and the related stress did away with her poetic side; the only writing she did was when she would submit opinion pieces to local newspapers. It was in 2008 when she switched to anesthesiology, the same year that she started writing a blog under the nom de plume of Doctor Jomeini. Since then, in addition to her blog writings-in the 3 website titled, El blog de la doctora Jomeini, El fog�n de la doctora Jomeini, and El chuletario de la doctora Jomeini-she periodically writes articles on science and anesthesiology.
