The lives, loves and losses of the doctors and nurses of Chicago's County General Hospital.
During an interview for the PBS series "Pioneers of Television," Noah Wyle said that while filming some of Carter's Africa storyline in the Kalahari Desert, the real on-set medic passed out from the heat, and Wyle (who by that time had been filmed pretending to perform hundreds of simulated medical procedures for the television show) actually inserted a real I.V. and hooked the medic up to a real saline drip.
Dr. John Carter:
It's really more about friendship than anything else.
Abby Lockhart: Really? I've never seen you kiss Frank like that.
CPR is not to be performed on a live person who is not in full cardiac arrest as performing CPR may disrupt normal heart rating of person in good condition. That is why even EMTs and other responders are taught on mannequins and never on live people
A couple of other noticeable differences between the two live broadcasts: Eriq La Salle's character stumbles and drops something out of his pocket in one version, and George Clooney's "neck cracking" gag elicits a startled response (and makes a louder sound) in the first version.
