Mike Cyra spent twenty-years working in Emergency Medical Services and Surgery as an Emergency Medical Technician, a Chief Medical Officer on a ship sailing Alaska’s violent Bering Sea, a Surgical Technologist and an Instructor of Maritime Emergency Medicine and Basic Life Support.


Mike Cyra’s debut eBook-Emergency Laughter: It Wasn't Funny When It Happened, But It Is Now, is a collection of hilarious real-life medical stories.  


Mike’s unique comedic storytelling style of writing lets you experience what it’s like to drive an emergency vehicle through traffic, the wrong way to deliver a baby, how to fake unconsciousness, how not to chop all your fingers off and what to do when you find yourself alone in a morgue refrigerator.

Stare death in the face and live to tell about it, at the hands of vomiting children and old women who spit food.


Laughter helps the mind, heals the body and is a critical survival tool for all who deal with death, dying and disaster up close. Mike shows that it’s OK to laugh at yourself and the world around you.


Emergency Laughter is an Amazon bestseller with over nine months in multiple Top 100 and Top 10 Humor book categories in the UK and USA.


Mike’s humor has appeared in The Placebo Journal, Our USA Magazine, Parenting Humor and 


Emergency Laughter has been featured on Medical Author Chat with Greg Friese, EMS World,, Midwest Book Review, 614 Magazine and Seattle's best morning radio: The Bob Rivers Show 95.7 KJR FM.
