Episode 3: 999: Critical Condition

Summary

Trauma team leader Julie Norton battles to save two patients whose lives hang in the balance. Father of four Ian is rushed in after suffering a cardiac arrest, while another man is bleeding so heavily he risks losing his entire circulatory system. Meanwhile, Ken has fallen from a roof onto a skip, leaving him with a gaping wound to his thigh and potentially life-threatening injuries to his pelvis and spine, and Dr Nayak helps Michael, who has suffered a severe stroke.

Review

Take a seat. Assume the brace position. Take deep breaths…and you’re ready to begin an episode of Channel 5’s hammering hospital series. As always, we’re beamed straight into the heart of the action at Royal Stoke University Hospital, where emergencies swirl around us: a heart attack, a quad bike accident, a woman with a mystery pain in her abdomen (“Agony worse than childbirth!” she groans), a man who has fallen off scaffolding into a skip, a stroke, a gunshot wound…The editing makes it almost overpowering: it can’t be quite this relentless in reality – can it? Amazingly, doctors who are performing brilliantly also pause to explain what’s going on.
