Ice doctors -- A heart-stopping moment -- Suspend disbelief -- Beyond death -- What lies beneath -- Cheating death in the womb -- What is a miracle? -- Another day.
In this riveting book, Dr. Sanjay Gupta--neurosurgeon, chief medical correspondent for CNN, and bestselling author--chronicles the almost unbelievable science that has made seemingly miraculous recoveries possible--from experiments with therapeutic hypothermia to save comatose stroke or heart attack victims to lifesaving operations in utero to the study of animal hibernation to help wounded soldiers on far-off battlefields.
