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.

Barnes and Noble

Amazon

Smashwords

Scribd

It should soon be available on all ebook platforms including Apple and Sony.

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

Check it out!

    Wonderful book. Many reminders of my own time as a paramedic/field preceptor. Thank you for giving a voice to the often unsung heros in soiled capes. Your blunt, yet painfully compassionate view of EMS professionals was spot on! I’ve already purchased your other books, and follow your blog, keep up the great work, and thank you!

    Any chance of putting this into print for us old-fashioned book types?

  • EMT Hannah says:

    Would really love to see this in print. I’ve been looking into a kindle or book for the convienence at the station but prefer an old fashioned book.

    Sorry it should be Nasogastric tube and not nasal cannula.

    What is the full question for ''3. Will traditional CPR be abandoned for cardiocerebral Resuscitation (CCR)?'' and what is the ''Treatment Recommendation''? Everyone looks at supraglotic airways with dispise because it is stated that it cannot handle airway pressures above 40 mmHg and it is a high risk for gastric aspiration; this is wrong, as…

    New NEMJ Study on Door-to-Balloon and Mortality in STEMI
    Jon, That is a very good question, and yes, we should be doing that. I don't have the guidelines in front of me, but I believe that the American College of Cardiology recommends PCI for STEMI patients within 4 to 6 hours of onset of chest pain. I believe that the method of treatment decision…

    Pedi codes are tough. I have transported a number cold and stiff just because everyone was freaking out. I guess it all depends on your feel for the situation. I know in the ED they will work pedis long after everyone knows they are dead. Still, if I can avoid working someone who is already…

    As a paramedic and a RN working in the ED, I can say we do not pull EMS airways unless they are in improper placement. Why fix something that is not broken. EMS does need repetition to keep skills. If needed the airway can be changed under less stressful situations. Why not secure an airway…
