Format: Paperback
Operation Flight nurse provides the reader with a realistic look in the roles and responsibilities of the flight nurse. This book also provides the reader with key points and lessons learned from the flight nurse point of view. The writer explains each transport situation and its challenges, along with how the situations were managed. The transport of complicated and complex medical emergencies is the main focus, often times involving the transport of patients from small community hospital to tertiary care center. I would recommend this book to any reader with an interest in flight nursing or emergency transport.

Fantastic book that I can closely relate to in my professional work as an Advanced Practice Critical Care Transport Paramedic in south eastern Michigan. Stories of triumph and defeat. I recommend this book to my new trainee paramedics. It gets them critically thinking about situations they may not have encountered yet on various approaches. Nicely written sir!

I love this book. I have been collecting books about the real life of nurses in their chosen fields and this was another great addition to my books. I love to read and I love nursing, so this is a great combination of both.

This book is a very well written title. The author hits on points that will help not only the medical professional, but the public in general. These points may just help to save a life. Many medical books are laced with medical jargon which can make it nearly unreadable without a medical background. Not this book. The wording and use of diagrams helps the reader obtain a grasp of the medical emergency without getting too convoluted. For the medical professional, this book will help you with everything from management of aortic dissections to ethical dilemmas. For those interested in life flight nursing, that is where this book excels the most. The tension and urgency of the scenarios are palpable. You get a feel for what it is like to be 2000 feet up in the air with a patient's life in your hands. Mr. Kaniecki addresses potential pitfalls and problems that can occur in a chaotic environment outside hospital walls. If you are in life flight or thinking about pursuing a career in it, then read this book!!!

David Kaniecki's Operation Flight Nurse is an inspirational read for nurses and laymen alike. David displays the full picture of thirteen case studies, from the initial call to the final outcome at the receiving hospital. He deftly explains in everyday language what he and his partner are thinking as they treat the patients. Cases include many medical situations, such as serious heart conditions, stroke, and complications of diabetes. Each chapter ends with take home points with one educational section for nurses and EMS providers, and an additional section for the public with potentially lifesaving information. As an EMT and nursing student, I highly recommend this book to anyone working, or hoping to work in a critical care environment.

I loved this book. I just finished my first semester of nursing school. This book a kinda like reading a bunch of case studies. The author does a really good job explaining what's going on, what equipment they used and so forth. He even gave advise on things to remember when treating these particular patients. He also give tips of signs and symptoms to look for to educate the general public about their health. Great read. I finished this book in a few days. I simply couldn't put it down.

I had just finished reading Trauma Junkie by Janet Hudson, and at first I was disappointed in this book because it lacked the excitement and drama. After I had read a few scenarios however, I began to get interested. There was a lot of good information clearly presented and I found it very useful to read. Even after 25 years as an ICU and ER nurse I learned a couple of new things. I will read both books again.
