A Nurse's Story: My Life in A&E During the Covid Crisis Audiobook

A Nurse's Story: My Life in A&E During the Covid Crisis

Author: Louise Curtis Narrator: Louise Curtis Release Date: October 2020

Moving, honest and inspiring – this is a nurse’s story of life in a busy A&E department during the Covid-19 crisis. Working in A&E is a challenging job but nurse Louise Curtis loves it. She was newly qualified as an advanced clinical practitioner, responsible for life or death decisions about the patients she saw, when the unthinkable happened and the country was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. The stress on the NHS was huge and for the first time in her life, the job was going to take a toll on Louise herself. In A Nurse’s Story she describes what happened next, as the trickle of Covid patients became a flood. And just as tragically, staff in A&E were faced with the effects of lockdown on society. They worried about their regulars, now missing, and saw an increase in domestic abuse victims and suicide attempts as loneliness hit people hard. By turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, this book shines a light on the compassion and dedication of hospital staff during such dark times

Nosotras, enfermeras: Historias de unos días que nos cambiaron para siempre Audiobook

Nosotras, enfermeras: Historias de unos días que nos cambiaron para siempre

Author: Enfermera Saturada Narrator: Irene Serrano Guerrero Release Date: October 2020

El testimonio de cómo las enfermeras vivimos los días en que un virus paralizó el mundo en poco más de tres meses y sumió a España en la peor pandemia del siglo XXI. Esta es la historia de una enfermera que luchó contra el coronavirus en primera línea, armada con una bolsa de basura y una mascarilla reutilizada. Pero, en realidad, es también la de todos los enfermeros y las enfermeras que plantaron cara al virus, esos a los que la sociedad llamó héroes, y por quienes aplaudía a las ocho, mientras ellos y ellas vivían con el miedo pegado a su espalda. Es el testimonio de sus lágrimas, temores y sacrificios, y a la vez de la inmensa felicidad que sentían cada vez que apagaban un respirador y entregaban el alta a un paciente. «El primer paciente que atendí con la COVID-19 fue el 5 de marzo de 2020. Creo que esta será una de las fechas que recordaré toda la vida. Hasta ese día, hasta el mismo instante en que tienes frente a ti a una persona contagiada con el virus que está causando tantos estragos, mis compañeras y yo seguíamos pensando que no nos tocaría. Supongo que una, como mecanismo de defensa, tiende a negar la realidad hasta que la tiene a dos metros de distancia y con un informe del laboratorio con la palabra POSITIVO escrita en mayúsculas. A pesar de todo, y aunque los casos en Italia se contaban ya por miles, seguíamos aferrándonos al hecho de que ese día en nuestro país los confirmados apenas superaban los doscientos y en las plantas de mi hospital los casos no llegaban ni a media docena. No podíamos ni imaginar que acabaríamos ingresando, únicamente en nuestra unidad, a más de trescientos pacientes en solo dos meses. Que en toda España habría más de doscientos cincuenta mil casos confirmados, que en apenas tres meses más de cincuenta mil compañeros y compañeras se contagiarían o que nos dejarían para siempre más de veintiocho mil personas según los datos oficiales. Con este libro pretendo plasmar, de la forma más fiel posible a la realidad, todas las historias acontecidas durante estos meses para que, a pesar del paso de los años, no se pierdan en el olvido, se reescriban o se desdibujen. Así, quienes no lo han vivido tan de cerca, podrán ser más conscientes de lo que sucedió.» «La crónica de un enorme esfuerzo profesional, escrita desde la solidaridad y la angustia. Leerlo es un acto de gratitud». PEPA FERNÁNDEZ.RNE

The Choice: The Abortion Divide in America Audiobook

The Choice: The Abortion Divide in America

Author: Danielle D'souza Gill Narrator: Danielle D'souza Gill Release Date: October 2020

For fifty years the abortion debate has remained stagnant, trapped in sterile categories and familiar rhetoric. Each side thinks they know what the other has to say, so they don't listen. Consequently, they have become deaf to each other's pleas. Danielle D'Souza Gill, in a pathbreaking new book, blows the lid off the abortion debate, which is radically different than it was when the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling of Roe v. Wade in 1973. Technology has transformed the landscape and allowed people to see development in the womb. Ultrasound has rendered many old assumptions about abortion obsolete. The Democratic Left has become radicalized on abortion. It is no longer a necessary evil, but a positive good. Consequently, the Left has legitimized a form of mass killing in this country that dwarfs the deaths caused by cancer, smoking, homicide, terrorism, and war. Writing with freshness, intelligence, and insight, Danielle explores the contours of the debate, taking into account new ideas, new technology, and new laws and putting forth a new vision for a life-affirming society. In Socratic style, Danielle builds her case in response to the strongest contentions of the pro-choice camp. She engages their most powerful arguments head-on, carefully examines them, and then dismantles them. The result is a pro-life argument so persuasive that it will reach into the heart of the most hardened opponent. While it is a heartbreaking book, it is in the end inspiring. No matter what you believe about abortion, this book will educate, astonish, and deeply move you. It may move you to a position different from what you now hold. If you read one book about abortion, make it this one, The Choice: The Abortion Divide in America.

Apollo's Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live Audiobook

Apollo's Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live

Author: Nicholas A. Christakis Narrator: Nicholas A. Christakis Release Date: October 2020

A piercing and scientifically grounded look at the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic and how it will change the way we live - "this year's must-must-read." (Daniel Gilbert)   Apollo's Arrow offers a riveting account of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic as it swept through American society in 2020, and of how the recovery will unfold in the coming years. Drawing on momentous (yet dimly remembered) historical epidemics, contemporary analyses, and cutting-edge research from a range of scientific disciplines, bestselling author, physician, sociologist, and public health expert Nicholas A. Christakis explores what it means to live in a time of plague - an experience that is paradoxically uncommon to the vast majority of humans who are alive, yet deeply fundamental to our species. Unleashing new divisions in our society as well as opportunities for cooperation, this 21st-century pandemic has upended our lives in ways that will test, but not vanquish, our already frayed collective culture. Featuring new, provocative arguments and vivid examples ranging across medicine, history, sociology, epidemiology, data science, and genetics, Apollo's Arrow envisions what happens when the great force of a deadly germ meets the enduring reality of our evolved social nature.

Stuck: How Vaccine Rumors Start - and Why They Don't Go Away Audiobook

Stuck: How Vaccine Rumors Start - and Why They Don't Go Away

Author: Heidi J. Larson Narrator: Chloe Cannon Release Date: October 2020

Vaccine reluctance and refusal are no longer limited to the margins of society. Debates around vaccines' necessity-along with questions around their side effects-have gone mainstream, blending with geopolitical conflicts, political campaigns, celebrity causes, and 'natural' lifestyles to win a growing number of hearts and minds. Today's anti-vaccine positions find audiences where they've never existed previously. Stuck examines how the issues surrounding vaccine hesitancy are, more than anything, about people feeling left out of the conversation. A new dialogue is long overdue, one that addresses the many types of vaccine hesitancy and the social factors that perpetuate them. To do this, Stuck provides a clear-eyed examination of the social vectors that transmit vaccine rumors, their manifestations around the globe, and how these individual threads are all connected.

COVID: The Politics of Fear and the Power of Science Audiobook

COVID: The Politics of Fear and the Power of Science

Author: Marc Siegel, M.D. Narrator: Peter Van Norden Release Date: October 2020

From Fox News Medical Analyst and the author of False Alarm (Wiley, 2008) comes COVID and the Politics of Fear by Marc Siegel, M.D. This shocking expose of the facts as the media covers the national pandemic news and spread of the invisible virus, reinforces the notion that we must arm ourselves against fear tactics that limit our abilities to safely make decisions and protect our families in a world of uncertainty.Life for citizens of the developed world before the pandemic was safer, easier, and healthier than for any other people in history thanks to modern medicine, science, technology, and intelligence-but COVID-19 has stolen that security and our nations peace of mind. Now there is a pandemic virus, as well as a crippling epidemic of fear sweeping America. Why? The answer, according to nationally renowned health commentator Dr. Marc Siegel, is that we already lived in an artificially created culture of fear that was just waiting to be unleashed. In COVID and the Politics of Fear, Siegel identifies three major catalysts of the culture of fear-government, the media, and our own psyche. With fascinating, blow-by-blow analyses of the most sensational false alarms of the past few years, compounded now by the worst contagion of our lifetimes, he shows how fearmongers manipulate our most primitive instincts-often without our even realizing it. COVID shows us how to look behind the hype and hysteria, inoculate ourselves against these crippling fear tactics, and develop the emotional and intellectual skills needed to take back our lives even as we battle the pandemic itself.

From Killer To Common Cold: Herd Protection and the Transitional Phase of Covid-19 Audiobook

From Killer To Common Cold: Herd Protection and the Transitional Phase of Covid-19

Author: Md David M Graham Narrator: Md Eric Larson Release Date: October 2020

We cannot eradicate Covid-19, but humans can help the virus grow to be more benign. To get there, we must enter the Transitional Phase, when Covid-19 transforms from pandemic to another common cold coronavirus. Understanding what a virus wants and how a virus views the world helps. With knowledge of existing human coronaviruses and basic viral/host interactions, we come to understand that herd protection—not herd immunity—is the goal. Immunity is not permanent from coronaviruses, and a vaccine will not be a silver bullet for the vampire that lives within our cells. After the epidemics are over, new cases do not go away. With or without a vaccine, we must learn how to live with Covid-19 in the world. What will the next few years look like? How can you protect yourself? And how can we help Covid-19 reach its destiny—to become the common cold?
