More About the Author


Dr. Todd Baker received a Bachelor of Science degree from Ouachita Baptist University (Arkadelphia, AR) in 1998 and a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (Little Rock, AR) in 2001. He then re-located to Ft. Hood, TX to begin a three-year Emergency Medicine Residency. Graduating in 2004, Dr. Baker then was stationed at Ft. Polk, LA, where he became the Regimental Surgeon for the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment. Quickly transitioning up to Ft. Lewis, WA four months later, he helped guide the medical footprint of the four-thousand soldier unit into one of the Army's new Stryker Brigade Combat Teams. In June of 2006, Dr. Baker joined the medical staff of Madigan Army Medical Center, where he served as an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine for the University of Washington.

In September, 2007, he traveled to Ft. Campbell, KY to join the 86th Combat Support Hospital, or CSH, for its fifteen month tour in Iraq. Dr. Baker served as the Chief of Emergency Medicine, Ibn Sina Hosptial, "Baghdad ER," for the entire fifteen-month tour of the 86th CSH. He also served as the Theater Consultant to the Surgeon General for Emergency Medicine for the last ten months of his tour. He was awarded the Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge for his service in Iraq

During Dr. Baker's seven plus years serving in the Army, he was published in multiple medical journals, to include Annals of Emergency Medicine and EM Clinics of North America. While in Iraq, he was interviewed by the German periodical, Der Spiegel, was focused in an amazing photograph taken by AP Photographer Maya Alleruzzo that was published in newspapers nationwide, and focused in an article in the University of Arkansas Medicine Alumni Magazine. He was selected as the Department of Emergency Medicine's "Teacher of the Year" for 2007 by the residents training at Madigan Army Medical Center.

Dr. Baker's academic interests focus on emergency ultrasound techniques and trauma resuscitation, and he was instrumental in updating the medical ultrasound systems used in all combat support hospitals throughout Iraq. Dr. Baker has taught hundreds of physicians from all specialty backgrounds emergency trauma ultrasound techniques, including speaking at both regional and national conferences nationwide. Separating from the military in March, 2009, he has continued educating others by teaching multiple ultrasound courses across American, to both military and civilian medical providers alike.
Since his separation from the military, Dr. Baker has re-located to Branson, MO, where he is currently serving as Co-Medical Director for the Emergency Department at Skaggs Regional Medical Center. He continues to travel and teach trauma ultrasound techniques and trauma resuscitation courses nationwide.

Dr. Baker has been featured in several publications including ACEP News, EM News, Internal Medicine News, and Branson Tri-Lakes Weekly, as well as local radio and television programs. He will be filming a national television program on one of his experiences from "Baghdad ER" in September of 2011.

In a simple but penetrating way, one gets just a little peak into the life of the medical folk that are in the Middle East. Dr. Baker's style of writing allows you to almost feel like you are looking over his shoulder as he cares for the patients. The frantic life of an ER is twice or three times as rugged over there from one minute to the next. He lets you sense that frustration, nerves and just plain hard work. He also shows you that in order to cope with the tension and pressure of the situation they sometimes do silly things to keep their sense of humor. It is surprising that they can keep their sense of humanity and compassion with bombs falling, planes coming in, terrorists on the doorstep and our wonderful soldiers paying the ultimate price. Hats off and a big salute to these wonderful people!!!!!!

As a combat medic, I think this is a well written look into what happens down range every day. Major Todd Baker did an outstanding job with this book. I would recommend it to anyone for sure.

I chose this book because I know and work with several of the staff mentioned therein. I am an avid reader so I thought this would be a quick read with some interesting stories. This book was a bit long in the tooth and somewhat repetitive in nature when defining health care language, but this may be due to a medical background. For an average reader this would be a factual insight into the life of a soldier in the health care realm at a busy combat hospital. Thank you to the troops for maintaining our freedom!!

I found it difficult to put this book down. Dr. Baker gave enough information about the care of the patients without being extremely gory and let me see into the life of an ER doctor in Iraq. Loved it!
