Trauma IV: Life in the ER

'Trauma IV: Life in the ER' explores what life is like in an emergency room. Viewers will travel to different hospitals located throughout the United States and learn about the trials and tribulations associated with emergency medicine.  Find out how doctors, nurses and patients interact in emergency settings and the special and often life-threatening situations they face. In Pittsburgh, the Allegheny General's trauma team is pushed to its limit with head injuries, brain surgery and a horse attack. At the Level One Trauma Centre at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, most patients arrive with multiple life-threatening injuries and the team's first job is to prioritize their care and address the most immediate damage.
