My latest book was published today. Mortal Men is a†novel about paramedics in Hartford, Connecticut in the 1990s when a gang war was raging in the city. It is a work of fiction.† Here is the official description:

Paramedic Troy Johnson battles trauma and sickness on the streets of Hartford, Connecticut. When a fellow medic is shot responding to a 911 call, a grief-stricken Troy vows to avenge his friend, while struggling to come to grips with his own mortality.

Mortal Men examines the ancient bonding between friends and partners who count on each other to make it safely home. Written by veteran paramedic Peter Canning, author of the acclaimed Paramedic: On the Front Lines of Medicine and Rescue 471: A Paramedicís Stories, Mortal Men provides a rare view into the real-life world of street medicine and into the lives of the men and women who fight its battles.

The book is available as an electronic book for Kindle, Nook or any other e-reader.

Here is a link to some of the places to buy it. The books sells for $3.99.

I’ll be writing more about the book next week.

    "either because they are seizing or are violent, then the better and quicker route would be IM. " I'm quite hesitant about bring a needle against someone fighting me or shaking... those are the perfect times to be needleless.

Aside from opening their chest and doing cardiac massage, there is no way to make the heart pump without doing chest compressions. Chest compressions are by nature traumatic. Ribs are often broken by…
