One of things I eventually want to write/co-write/get is a medical book for writers. (Which I don’t think there is.) The idea is that it would provide a reference on common problems that characters might encounter, such as shootings, electrocutions, ect, and the procedure from it immediately happening to what someone can expect for a hospital stay (or if they discharge themselves earlier like Jack Bauer likes to do.)
In the meantime, I have to find what I need through my nursing background and online. I’m tempted to buy an old edition nursing textbook, because that also has a lot of information (Without the cost).
I did, however, write a scene recently that involved a child suspected of drowning and what they would do for him. (I mainly wanted to know if he would have an EKG on him.) In doing that, I found this website.
A wonderful source of information about drowning while writing a drowning scene
Yes, I hope that google will pick that up.
I’ve always wanted a book or at least a place of reference for writers regarding illnesses and injuries! I would purchase something like that in a heartbeat. I haven’t been following your blog for that long, but you have already proven to be a vast wealth (and a refreshingly modest) source of information for writers. So, thank you :)
