Tales of the Biomed covers funny anecdotes and photos collected over the past 40+ years by David W. Braeutigam and his friends. Years of sharing these ‘war stories’ with other biomed techs prompted David to finally share those great stories with others in the biomed field.

David was trained as a biomed tech in the U.S. Army at Fitzsimons in Aurora, Colorado in the late 1970’s. His career took him to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC, Fort Bragg in North Carolina, a hospital in El Paso, Texas and finally to hospitals throughout the Dallas – Fort Worth metroplex. Today he serves as a Healthcare Technology Management consultant and writer.

A Red Raiders Officer's Diary during WWII
A personal diary of 1st Lt. Carroll G. Henry with the 408th Bomb Squadron in the Southwest Pacific

David is a 2nd Cousin to Elgin J. Luckenbach and the family historian. He has been fascinated with the story of his cousin that went MIA in WWII.
Upon reading a story in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram in November of 2002 about “Black Sunday” the date sounded familiar. When he went back into his research he found the date matched the day Elgin went missing. He immediately contacted his cousins who had already been contacted for DNA samples from JPAC.
After four long years of recovery and DNA testing Elgin was returned to the United States and buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery.
This book is a story of his journey from Luckenbach to the Pacific and back to the United States after his recovery and the brave men who perished with him.

Early in my journey to become a consultant, I ran across several people that also had an interest in consulting. I read numerous books on general consulting and decided to write a book specifically just for the Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) profession on how to become an HTM consultant.
This book should walk you down the steps you need to take to get initially started as you begin your business and steps to later make you successful in your consulting career. 

While this book refers to the experience of the author and advice he received from reading and from friends, be sure to consult with an attorney, an accountant and your banker when appropriate
