-- Plus: A Dinner Out with Friends Nearly Costs a Woman Her Life“Save My Life: Boston Trauma” Continues Sunday, August 9th at 10:00 PM/ET on ABC
From the producers of critically-acclaimed “Hopkins, “Boston Med,” and “NY Med,” comes “Save My Life: Boston Trauma,” an adrenaline-packed series that follows trauma cases from the actual scene of unimaginable accidents. In this six-part series, viewers will accompany top tier trauma teams inside the emergency rooms and operating rooms of some of the nation’s most prestigious hospitals including the Boston Medical Center, Massachusetts General, and Brigham and Women’s. Lives that could be lost or traumatically damaged in lesser hands at less renowned medical centers are saved through feats of skill and commitment. Some cases begin with the first responders of Boston’s EMS who distinguished themselves at the Boston Marathon bombing more than two years ago. For those needing treatment, one thing is certain, Boston offers some of the best medical care available anywhere. “Save My Life: Boston Trauma,” airs SUNDAY, August 9th at 10:00 PM/ET (10:00-11:00 pm) on the ABC Television Network.
In episode four, a medical student rides thirty feet on the hood of the car that struck her while she was biking. If her boyfriend’s daughter hadn’t lent her a helmet, the outcome would have been very different. Elsewhere, a woman allergic to latex begins to suffocate after eating food prepared by kitchen workers wearing rubber gloves. The standard antidote is epinephrine, a drug sold at pharmacies that is easy to self-inject from an EpiPen. Those who suffer from anaphylaxis are often advised by doctors to never leave home without their “pens,” but in this case, the patient forgot.
Also in this episode, an ER doctor keeps his cool when a patient becomes physically aggressive and has to be restrained. And two overdose cases highlight the incidence of heroin addiction among a group of veterans who served in America’s wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
