Professor Sidney Sands, vivacious wife of a mathematician and devoted mother of a young son, is researching a cure for fatal lung disease when ironically she is diagnosed with the very condition she is investigating. Does this entitle her to jump the queue for scarce donor organs? In a gripping fictional account of transplantation, which also reveals its lighter side, Intensive Care confronts the emotional and ethical issues of 'spare-part' surgery, its effect on those who are waiting and the dilemma of an eminent surgeon called upon to play God.
