Abstract
For a doctor in Intensive Care, intense emotion is part of the job. Fear in the eyes of a terminally ill patient who pleads with you to not let them die. Disgust at caring for a convicted rapist. But there are also moments of joy, like the rare bright spots of lucidity for a dementia patient, or when the ward unexpectedly breaks into song. Dr Aoife Abbey shows us what a doctor sees of humanity as it comes through the door of the hospital and takes us beyond a purely medical perspective. Told through seven emotions, Seven Signs of Life is about what it means to be alive and to care for a living.
