Saddest tv death ever?


Casualty tonight.... I have never cried so much during a tv programme ever. It was worse than Dr. Green in ER.

I need to go watch something happy now. I also call for the shooting of the script writers

In other news, it snowed. Possibly enough now for a snowman!

Hold on. Dr. Green died in ER? I have not watched that show in a long time, but Dr. Green was one of my favorites.

It snowed here too.

Who died in Casualty? I haven't watched it in years, not since I knew enough medicine to see how innaccurate it was.

ER however was brilliant and I can't possibly imagine it was better done than Dr Greene's (or Pratt's for that matters).

Ooh - what happened? I haven't watched Casualty for years! I stopped watching after Megan got shot - that totally spoilt it, yo!

I don't know if any TV death could be sadder than when Mark Green died on ER *lol*.

I don't even know who those characters are. It's being discussed on one of the anaesthetic forums I use though...

OMG - is any one watching this rubbish! The hypotermic man is intubating a baby - without an anaesthetist. The man with a brain tumour is doing cardiac bypass without an anaesthetist, nursing staff or a perfusionist and the SHO is about to miss a classic aortic dissection!
They haven't even attempted to find any other specialists!

I think I should probably avoid it!

ryc: To be fair, paediatricians can also intubate babies. Because most babies in NICU units are intubated, and those units are run by paediatricians, paediatricians have to be trained to be able to intubate, especially in an emergency (i.e. as soon as possible if a baby has just been born and is struggling). And I've never intubated a baby (although I suspect most of the anaesthetic consultants have at some point). But the only people who intubate adults are anaesthetists. And the only people who intubate babies are anaesthetists and paediatricians (oh, and some emergency medicine doctors intubate too, although I think most would ask for specialist help with a baby. Paramedics can also intubate in emergency situations). Definitely NOT surgeons!

So Casualty, being about emergency docs, can possibly get away with it. But it annoys me when shows like Greys Anatomy and Holby City show surgeons intubating. In real life they wouldn't have a clue.

I think the main point was that they were doing cardiac surgery without an anaesthetist which is NOT possible!

They're still discussing it on (some people on there have far too much time on their hands, I posted a question on boxing day about an electricity question in my revision and I've now got about 20 replies, most of which have far too complicated explanations for me to understand!). This is the latest...

I know on the "advisors" for the sister programme 'Holby City'. He is a practising consultant anaesthetist working somewhere beginning with S (have to maintain some level of anonymity).
To be fair to him he told me they ignore most of what he says so as to allow the 'story to fit' - every patient who undergoes MAJOR surgery is extubated within the hour and seems to not require a central line!

Although, in my opinion ER managed to make the story fit AND maintain the medical accuracy most of the time (apart from a problem they seemed to have with giving very sick patients adequeate amounts of oxygen. The best you can get through nasal cannulae, which is what almost every patient in ER was wearing, is about 40%. Ordinary air has 21% oxygen! With the correct mask however we can give almost 100%).

Apologies for the rambling. It's the wine, and the margarita, and the vodka...
