"Matt Morgan’s book provides an invaluable insight into the stresses and strains, highs and lows of daily life inside an ICU"

In some ways, the book has been overtaken by events. Statistics quoted by Morgan for deaths in ICUs (one in five patients admitted to an ICU will die) are likely to be very different during the coronavirus pandemic. It would be wonderful to read Morgan’s take on this horrific period when it is over. His wit and compassion are everywhere evident in this enlightening book, and he could make a welcome contribution to our understanding of these extraordinary times.
