Cheating Death
fullDescription
An unborn baby with a fatal heart defect . . . a skier submerged for an hour in a frozen Norwegian lake . . . a comatose brain surgery patient whom doctors have declared a "vegetable."
Twenty years ago all of them would have been given up for dead, with no realistic hope for survival. But today, thanks to incredible new medical advances, each of these individuals is alive and well . . .Cheating Death.
In this riveting book, Dr. Sanjay Gupta-neurosurgeon, chief medical correspondent for CNN, and bestselling author-chronicles the almost unbelievable science that has made these seemingly miraculous recoveries possible. A bold new breed of doctors has achieved amazing rescues by refusing to accept that any life is irretrievably lost. Extended cardiac arrest, "brain death," not breathing for over an hour-all these conditions used to be considered inevitably fatal, but they no longer are. Today, revolutionary advances are blurring the traditional line between life and death in fascinating ways.
Drawing on real-life stories and using his unprecedented access to the latest medical research, Dr. Gupta dramatically presents exciting accounts of how pioneering physicians and researchers are altering our understanding of how the human body functions when it comes to survival-and why more and more patients who once would have died are now alive. From experiments with therapeutic hypothermia to save comatose stroke or heart attack victims to lifesaving operations in utero to the study of animal hibernation to help wounded soldiers on far-off battlefields, these remarkable case histories transform and enrich all our assumptions about the true nature of death and life.

shortDescription

A 12-week old unborn baby with a fatal heart defect--a skier drowned for an hour in a frozen Norwegian lake--a comatose brain surgery victim--a teenager with four rapidly expanding brain tumors. Prognosis?

Twenty years ago all would have been left for dead--with little hope for their survival. But incredible new advances in the sciences of human survival have now changed that, and each of these would-be fatalities is not only alive, but leading a healthy, productive life today.

In Cheating Death, Dr. Sanjay Gupta chronicles the emerging science behind these medical miracles, made possible by a new breed of doctors who refuse to accept that any life is "lost" and the almost daily scientific breakthroughs in the field.

Drawing on the case files in the rapidly evolving science of survival, and his unprecedented access to breaking news in this field from around the globe, Dr. Gupta explains the latest technological developments that are changing our understanding of the...
