 EP 1118B - Tornado of Life: A Doctor’s Journey Through Constraints and Creativity in the ER | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Stories from the ER: a doctor shows how empathy, creativity, and imagination are the cornerstones of clinical care.To be an emergency room doctor is to be a professional listener to stories. Each patient presents a story; finding the heart of that story is the doctor's most critical task. More technology, more tests, and more data won't work if doctors get the story wrong. When caring for others can feel like venturing into unchartered territory without a map, empathy, creativity, imagination, and thinking like a writer become the cornerstones of clinical care. In Tornado of Life, ER physician Jay Baruch shares these struggles in a series of short, powerful, and affecting essays that invite the reader into stories rich with complexity and messiness.Patients come to the ER with lives troubled by scales of misfortune that have little to do with disease or injury. ER doctors must be problem-finders before they are problem-solvers. Baruch describes, among other things, the emergency of loneliness (invoking Chekhov, another doctor-writer); his own (frightening) experience as a patient; the patient who demanded a hug; and emergency medicine during COVID-19. These stories often end without closure or solutions. The patients are discharged into the world. But if they're lucky, the doctor has listened to their stories as well as treated them.

 EP 1117B - Inside The Orphan Drug Revolution | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Rare diseases are also called ‘orphan diseases,’ so named because they were long abandoned (or orphaned) by a profit-driven pharmaceutical industry.Rare diseases are also called ‘orphan diseases,’ so named because they were long abandoned (or orphaned) by a profit-driven pharmaceutical industry. So why a book about orphan drugs, which by definition treat only rare diseases? Did they really trigger a revolution important enough to care about? And if so, why is that so little known? In fact, orphan drugs have revolutionized society, for reasons ranging from the deeply personal to the broader cultural and political.Rare diseases deserve our attention because they’re merciless, causing families often far worse human suffering than common diseases. And unlike many common diseases, few can be prevented or treated by a good diet or exercise. Perhaps most importantly, a rare genetic disease could someday strike any family—and an orphan drug become of utmost urgency to anyone with a child or grandchild, niece or nephew.A biotechnology executive, Jim Geraghty has been a passionate participant in the orphan drug revolution since its inception. His book is in part a history, with eyewitness accounts of advances as they occurred and portraits of the pioneering scientists and physicians, tireless activists, and visionary business leaders who made the revolution happen. And it tells deeply personal stories of patients and parents willing to risk new, untried therapies. But Geraghty also uses his exceptional experience and vantage point to look forward, to the immense promise of the newest technologies like gene therapy and gene editing for the treatment of patients today and tomorrow.
