Overview


This book takes the reader to the front lines of medicine, from a serious automobile accident on a dark country road to a woman in cardiac arrest to a young man with near-fatal gunshot wounds. For these patients and countless others, treatment cannot wait until they are wheeled into a distant emergency room. If lives can be salvaged, care must begin with the life-saving skills of Emergency Medical Technicians. "I could never work on a rescue squad," is a statement the author has heard over and over throughout her years of squad service and readily admits it once described her own feelings. "If I can do it, so can you," is her response to those whose fear and self-doubt hold them back. "Anything is possible." EMT: Beyond the Lights and Sirens is more than a personal account of Pat Ivey's rescue squad experiences. It is a story of courage and hope and letting go of past losses. Is is a book for anyone who's ever struggled to go beyond who they are. Step aboard the ambulance. Witness the tender moments amidst tragedy. Experience the joy and the anguish and share the tears and laughter of volunteer rescue squad personnel who respond around the clock to the cries of others. In this heartwarming and compelling book, Pat Ivey takes the reader beyond the lights and sirens on a journey they will never forget.

Meet the Author


Author's Biographical Note: "I am still in EMS, still a cardiac technician on Lake of the Woods Volunteer Rescue Squad here in Wilderness, VA. I continue to teach EMS classes, and now I am working in the Culpeper Regional Hospital Emergency Room. I remain a great believer in holistic medicine, the magic of touch and the healing power of love. My life, as with everyone, has been a series of mountains and valleys. Since I first met Richard in 1990, I have lost my father and my older son. Both events are works in progress. The mountain in my life is my granddaughter, born in April of 2001. I've never been so in love."
