Shock Trauma

SHOCK TRAUMA is an unscripted docudrama telling the parallel stories of the doctors, nurses and the patients at the world-renowned R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, MD. With a 97% survival rate and treating more than 8,000 patients annually, compared to the typical 3,000 per year, it is the best trauma center in the country. Only the most critically injured patients facing death in Maryland are transported here, and even the White House has a direct line to them if services are needed. Whether it's a bridge collapse, gang shooting, or massive over-turned tracker trailer accident, the SHOCK TRAUMA Center is always ready and in position to save lives.
