i saw a preview to trauma in the theaters before the showing of Inglorious Basterds. me and another emt friend of mine were watching and we notice in the preview of Trauma they had a PT with an OPA in his mouth conscious, responsive and awake. we bothed laughed and decided from then on we were going to watch and see how misguided the shows "medical" protocols are.

"Trauma" looks about as close to real medicine as "Nip/Tuck", but I'm going to keep watching N/T because, well, it's N/T! :p

I dont like that fact on how all of these medical shows state that they are as real to reality as it can get, when they sure as hell aren't.
"He's flat lining, lets shock him"
oh.. okay yes sir God.

I saw a preview for Trauma today, and it looks like a fast paced action show that Gov. Arnold would be in.
The women wearing low-cut uniform shirts showing clevage(not that i dont mind :p) seems to me like it would be a slap in the face to all the women on the job who have worked hard to prove themselves in a male dominated profession.

Lucid-- a pre-req to looking cute in uniform is actually looking cute in the first place.

:p

Youtube clip of the Paramedics show

Thanks for the clip! Now I'm hooked. :lol:

I knew about Trauma: Life in the ER but that circles more around the ED and Doctors then emt/medics. I did however see an awesome one once where a construction worker was impaled through the skull with a hook on a type of equipment. The trauma surgeon had to respond to the scene to help direct the FD to detach the hook from the equipment so they could transport the patient. It was incredible.

It is. It's unfortunate that heroines have to be young, extraordinarily attractive, and dressed in "uniforms" much more revealing than those of their male counterparts.

Which is why I have such an issue with how some are dressing in class. Because I now have to prove myself against that. Thanks for setting our gender back a few decades sweets! Oie.

You forgot to mention that only happened after she brought him back to life by saying "C'MON, STAY WITH ME!!!" :p

I must say I read their forums at NBC on the Show.... nothing but negative comments...and I agree with most of them. If the preview was not accurate as to what actually happens in an emergency... then why watch it?? They set themselves up poorly on that one.

and yes... most of the comments made on their forum were from EMT's and Paramedics... gotta love it

As opposed to the more realistic, "Don't you DARE *#*!@% code on me!" as the patient starts to brady down? ;)

Raise a hand if you know a whacker who likes to do nothing drive fast and "play with the toys" ....

Raise the entry to practice standard and get rid of these TV shows and how many of you will be raising your hand next time?

There's your answer.

For the record I still watch COPS but its purely for entertainment value, heck COPS freaking rules but I know its not reality.

Actually, COPS is, technically, reality. It just doesn't show the normal parts of police work ;)

Nothing wrong with watching a TV show if you take it with a grain of salt. Or, come to think of it, a spoonful.
