Thank you so much for taking the time to read my book and for your kind words. "Behind the Mask" was written to bring the reader inside the world of surgery and into the mind of a surgeon. Find out more at my blog http://heardinthor.blogspot.com

As an ICU director, I have always had an excellent rapport with my surgical colleagues. Building trust over the years has been extremely important as I served as those second set of eyes to watch for signs of post operative sepsis. I have seen many surgeons go from "it can't be from my surgery" to "we need to aggressively decide if it is a surgical infection and then I must go in". One of the most rewarding parts of being an intensivist is to be able to partner with my surgical colleagues and to be able to call them in the middle of the night to share my suspicions and for them to jump on it and save a patient's life one more time.
