Dr. Paul Seward has written a new book about his long career as an emergency room physician. We speak with Seward on this "Vermont Edition."

Doctors have been providing emergency care for patients for as long as there have been doctors. But emergency medicine as a specialty is a relatively new development. On this Vermont Edition, we're talking to Dr. Paul Seward, one of the first physicians to specialize in emergency medicine.

Seward has been a physician for nearly 50 years, and he has spent most of his career working in emergency rooms. His new book, Patient Care: Death and Life in the Emergency Roomtells the story of his career in the emergency room and his thoughts on the ethics of medicine.
