Urgências e Emergências em Saúde  : perspectivas de profissionais e usuários

Abstract : The work intends to unveil what is an urgency or a health emergency from two perspectives: that of users and that of public health professionals. The author shows a dynamic and complex universe based on an anthropological work carried out at the Faculty of Medicine of Marília, in São Paulo. These are medical decisions, often of paramount importance for the maintenance of life, often questionable from an ethical point of view. It is worth remembering that the book not only works with the doctor / patient dichotomy, showing the reader other actors involved in emergency work and revealing that medical actions are often preceded by small steps and peculiar attitudes of significant importance that cannot be ignored. , such as that of an ambulance driver or the hospital porter.
