Every Second Counts
Consultant Neurosurgeon Ismail Ughratdar has just minutes to operate to save the life of a 64-year-old woman who has a bleed on the brain after falling in the street. Blood is accumulating and putting pressure on her brain that is very likely to lead to permanent disability or death unless Ismail can perform a craniotomy to alleviate the pressure in time. And when a motorcyclist is rushed in by helicopter, Consultant General Surgeon Catherine Powell must decide whether to operate on his internal bleeding. Last in the series.
