True Life Stories of Emergency Medicine

Real life medical drama is OK but it can bring you down… but true stories of emergency medicine that make you laugh out loud are the best!

Mike Cyra’s comedic storytelling style of writing is hilarious! “Emergency Laughter” is a collection of his real life, adrenaline fueled, near- death experiences at the hands of old ladies, small children, a morgue refrigerator and an out of control ambulance.

These stories will make you laugh, cry and not eat certain food groups. They explore how laughter helps the mind, heals the body and is a critical survival tool for all who see death and dying up close.
Mike Cyra spent twenty-years working as an EMT, a Chief Medical Officer on a ship in Alaska’s Bering Sea, a Surgical Technologist and an Instructor of Maritime Emergency Medicine. His humor has appeared in The Placebo Journal, Our USA Magazine, Parenting Humor and HumorPress.com.

The stories in this book are based on actual events. The names and places have been changed to protect the innocent, the guilty and the embarrassed.

Emergency Laughter will stay with the reader long after it’s put down.
