Trauma Drama – Premiere Tonight on NBC

The new NBC drama Trauma premieres tonight on NBC. I am planning to watch. Are you? You can discuss the show live with Jamie Davis, Chris Montera, and me. Visit MedicCastLive to join the fun.

Like many EMS professionals I watched the TV show Emergency (Amazon link) as a child. I am not sure it influenced my decision to become a paramedic, but I have some specific memories of several episodes and character interactions. What are your Emergency memories?

As I watch Trauma I will be looking for these things:


1. Accuracy of procedures and terminology.

2. Interactions between characters and their patients.

3. Ideas for how I can make delivery of EMS education more engaging and entertaining.

What will you be watching for during the premiere?
