The heart-in-mouth quality of this fast-paced ob doc comes not just from the dramatic thudding of the on-screen clock as the seconds and minutes tick down, but from the everyday scenarios that suddenly turn deadly.

In this episode doctors battle to save three people involved in split-second incidents: a young man injured in a car crash, a cyclist knocked down by a lorry, and a young woman who collapsed in the street. Her heart has stopped, but there’s no time to find out why – they must bring her back within minutes if she has any hope of survival.


The final episode of the medical science series follows medics as they fight to save a young man who's been injured in a car crash. Cameras also focus on a cyclist who has been involved in a collision with a lorry, and a young woman whose heart stopped after a sudden collapse in the street.
