Medical documentary- Aug 7th ICU: Arkansas Children's Hospital

  1. ICU: Arkansas Children's Hospital
    60 min.
    Debut: ABC News gains access to a Little Rock medical facility in this powerful four-part documentary.
    Like its predecessor, 2000's Hopkins 24/7, this series follows the patients and staff at one of the country's most prestigious hospitals. But emotions run even higher in a pediatric intensive-care unit, where children's lives are at stake. In the opener, two boys---one 2 weeks old, the other 9 years old---are both in need of heart transplants, and a 16-month-old girl arrives with a racing heartbeat. Overseeing it all is Dr. Jonathan Drummond-Webb, the South African-born chief of cardiac surgery, who is passionate about his commitment to his patients and colleagues. Elizabeth Vargas narrates.

    Thanks for the reminder! I forgot this was starting tonight.

    Did anyone watch "Houston Medical" on ABC? I really got into that series. Loved the paramedic proposing to his girlfriend the flight nurse--and really got emotionally caught up in Dr. Marnie Rose's story (the pediatric resident with recurrent glioblastoma).

    I like the trend this summer of airing first-run docudramas instead of endless reruns.

    I liked Houston Medical. I even went to the web site to see if it had updates on the patients....Does any one know how Dr. Marnie Rose is doing....??? I hated not knowing how everything turned out for those people!
