Trivia

Episode Cardiac Arrest: You Can't Make an Omelette Without Breaking Legs (1994) was scheduled for broadcast on 12 May 1994 but was postponed for a week as a mark of respect for the Labour Party leader John Smith who had died that morning - coincidentally of a heart attack and cardiac arrest.

User Reviews

an outstanding hospital series
24 January 2004 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

Cardiac arrest has to be the best hospital series made. Yes it was unpopular with the people but was a reflection of life in the NHS not as a patient but as staff. Espically the Junior house doctors who along with the nursing staff make the system work.
