A package I wrote called “Chilling Medical Dramas” was the March, 2014, Reader’s Digest cover story. How chilling were they? A woman loses 540 pints of blood during childbirth; a man shoots himself in the heart with a nailgun; food poisoning triggers a heart attack and a man has a history of waking up during surgery.
