From heart attacks to gaping wounds, fierce pains, gun shots, and car accidents, there's never a dull day in the ER. Dedicated doctors, nurses, and technical staff provide innovative and effective emergency treatments for all kinds of trauma patients. Each episode features a different hospital; and the unique situations their staffs face; as teams make split-second decisions to save lives.
More realistic, but not nearly as entertaining as NBC's 'ER'
'Trauma: Life in the E.R.' works really well as a introduction to how the medical system works, but isn't good for much more than that. It's biggest fault is that it went the opposite way of 'ER', and concentrates more on the lives of the patients instead of the doctors and medical staff, which pretty well knocks out any entertainment value that could be derived from the series. The biggest surprise to me is how well the series has done, as the relatively poor production values and unfocused direction are just too much of a distraction. A real misfire compared to 'ER'.
