Space Doctor

(1981)
A novel by

 
It would cost 150 lives, more or less, to get the GEO satellite on-line and transmitting solar power to an energy-starved Earth - that was the estimate of fatal industrial accidents in the mammoth space project. It was Dr. Tom Noels's job to cut that deadly figure drastically, by designing, staffing, and running a complete emergency ward 22,400 miles from the nearest hospital. Tom Noels had to re-invent almost every medical technique to allow for weightlessness and the other unknown facts of space, and he improvised brilliantly - but not always successfully. He treated patients who were injured in ways undreamed of in medical history - including a "bullet wound" from a micro-meteorite - lost some, saved some, and would save many more....if only he managed to stay alive himself!
