Hey. I hear a lot of medical questions from writers, everything from poisoning to stab wounds. What happens in an ER? (It's not pandemonium, and it takes longer than three minutes from door to surgery.) What does the heart look like in surgery? (A picture is worth a thousand words.) How can my character take out his own appendix? (Don't try it.) Seems like a bunch of writers want access to reliable information. This blog will feature entries about items of medical interest to writers, and I'll review comments for requests for upcoming blogs. If you have a question you want answered privately, leave me your email in the comment. I'll do my best to get back to you. So...get out there and write that medical scene with the flavor of being there.
