Michael Crichton has created a medical drama that chronicles life and death in a Chicago hospital emergency room. Each episode tells the tale of another day in the ER, from the exciting to the mundane, and the joyous to the heart-rending. Frenetic pacing, interwoven plot lines, and emotional rollercoastering is used to attempt to accurately depict the stressful environment found there. This show even portrays the plight of medical students in their quest to become physicians. Written by

Some of the operations in the series were dramatized versions of real-life operations. The writers scouted out hospitals around the Los Angeles area to get ideas for new episodes. An early episode, in which a baby gets a coat hanger stuck in its throat, was based on a real emergency in a Los Angeles hospital. However, the situation was dramatized by adding a scene where the baby bleeds profusely, and required a tracheotomy (in real-life, they simply reached in and pulled the hanger out). See more »
The paramedics that come into the ER wear national registry patches on the uniforms. All Illinois medics wear Illinois state patches. Illinois does not recognize the NREMT. See more »
It took me some time to get hooked by E.R.. It was only during the preparations for my exams that I discovered the daily reruns of E.R., and after some five episodes I decided to have my lunch break every day when E.R. was running.
I really love the show today, especially because of the strong, realistic characters and the thrilling action in the hospital (where time is always running low). I think this is one of the best TV series ever made. Though the newer seasons were a little worse than the first three ones (what a tragedy when Doctor Lewis left, sniff), it is still worth watching.
