Rodgers, a veteran volunteer EMT and physical therapist for a trauma center, provides an up-close look at medical emergencies she has encountered over the years. This book contains 30 true stories featuring people of all ages, with different issues and outcomes.
As an example, Rodgers tells about responding to a call where a man’s arm was stuck in a garbage disposal. His hand was beginning to swell, and nothing seemed to loosen it. He had heart problems, and his blood pressure was rising. What would the EMT crew do to quickly and safely rescue him?
Other stories involve extreme alcohol poisoning, bicycle and automobile accidents, and various health issues. Rodgers consistently shows God’s hand at work, and readers will feel various emotions as they digest each situation.
On Heaven’s Doorstep will especially appeal to those who like to cover a lot of territory in a short amount of time.
