The Medicine of ER lets you scrub in for an insider's view of the most true-to-life medical television series ever made. From "crikes" to "crash carts," it takes you behind the quick cuts - both those of the camera and those of the scalpel - to enhance your understanding of the heroics and the heartbreak that fill every episode of this phenomenally popular show. In fact, the show's writers have actually come in search of material to the hospital where author Harlan Gibbs practices. Find out what's not quite right about Peter Benton flipping between the ER and the surgical department. And why John Carter by now would have been booted out of any emergency room in the country! What's more, you will learn what to expect if you find yourself a patient in an ER - and when it's the most dangerous time for you to be there.Here is everything dedicated viewers will want to know, including bloopers from the series, clear explanations of how ER doctors zero in on a diagnosis, and step-by-step re-creations of the medical decisions and procedures from some of ER's most gripping episodes. Follow the authors through the doors of the ER, and you will see the show as you never have before.
