THIS WEEK ON "NY MED," SURGEONS AT MOUNT SINAI'S ROOSEVELT HOSPITAL MUST OPERATE ON A TWO-YEAR OLD GIRL WHO COULD SUFFER A CATASTROPHIC CEREBRAL EVENT AT ANY MINUTE IF THEY ARE UNABLE TO ALTER THE FLOW OF BLOOD TO HER BRAIN
Plus: A Spunky ER Resident Tells the Cops to Stop Aggravating a Patient Who is already
Handcuffed to His Bed
And: A Surgical Resident is Stunned When a Nervous Patient--Whose Aorta Could Rupture At Any Moment--Decides to Flee the Hospital Before a Life-Saving Operation Can Be Performed
After nearly two years of production, "NY MED" is back. This fast-paced, eight-part series mostly toggles between the orderly operating rooms of Manhattan's New York-Presbyterian Hospital -- the primary venue for the series -- where renowned surgeons perform feats of medical brilliance and the sometimes hectic trauma wards of Newark's University Hospital where skilled doctors gallantly struggle to treat a flood of gunshot, stabbing and life-threatening trauma cases. The surgeons of "NY MED" never forget that there are limits to what medical science can do and that sometimes their best efforts come up short. In "Episode 206," which airs THURSDAY, JULY 31 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET); viewers will encounter the following patients, doctors and nurses:
At Mount Sinai's Roosevelt hospital, Amy Caggiula might look like a bright-eyed, freshman college student. But this petite ER resident can diagnose anything that walks in the door. Whether she is saving a woman in cardiac arrest or figuring out how to cut a cheap ring off a young lady's badly mangled finger, Amy proves that good things come in small packages. And this take-charge young doctor is not afraid to speak her mind.
Also at Roosevelt, Alejandro Berenstein is a world leader in his field, and he'd better be if he is going to be able to help save the two year old daughter of a coast guard officer who could suffer a catastrophic cerebral event if Berenstein cannot alter the flow of blood to her brain. Victoria is a ticking time bomb and the surgery is very risky but its all hands on deck for this crucial operation. Joining in this effort is pediatric neurosurgeon Saadi Ghatan, who is the ice to Berenstein's fire. But can they work together to save this little girl in time?
On another floor, its business as usual for young Roosevelt resident, Craig Forleiter. He talks a mile a minute but his patients trust him and his superiors believe the charismatic Forleiter has the makings of a top notch surgeon
They come in with bullet wounds and tattoos like FTW (F*** The World) and MOB (Money Over Bitches) but trauma surgeon Adam Fox knows that most of his male patients at Newark's University Hospital are just scared teenagers putting on a show for the street crowd they run with.
