The lives, loves and losses of the doctors and nurses of Chicago's County General Hospital.
The helicopter used for this show actually belongs to the University of Chicago Hospital. It is a 1989 AEROSPATIALE SA365N-1 DAUPHIN, registration number N365UC. As of 2017, this same helicopter is still in service with the university. The registration is valid through 2019.
Dr. Peter Benton:
Last time he came in here, he yelled in my stethoscope.
Dr. Cleo Finch: He grabbed my ass. Suck it up.
None of the doctors or nurses performs CPR correctly, but if done with straight arms and enough force to make a difference, it can (and often does) break the patient's ribs. Obviously it's better to go without a factually accurate portrayal of the procedure than to injure the actors in the name of realism.
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.
