Storyline

An accident occurs and we dial 911, an ambulance arrives and we are taken to a fully equipped Emergency Room staffed with specifically trained Emergency Room Doctors. Forty years ago, that was not the case. How did we get here? Our film explores the dramatic history of modern Emergency Medicine, told by its maverick founders, in their own words. The historic take on the specialty allows us to contrast where Emergency Medicine is today with where it began, not too long ago. Written by Anonymous

Everyone who has gone or may ever go to an Emergency Department should see this.
24 March 2014 | by aufderhSee all my reviews

Amazing documentary! Chronicles the birth and development of the specialty of Emergency Medicine with detailed time line and fascinating anecdotes from founders and practitioners. Impressive to learn what was accomplished to create this relatively new specialty. What we take for granted, was hard won by some entrepreneurial mavericks, along with a good dose of serendipity. What comes through loud and clear is the passion to save lives and the vision, dedication and cleverness it took early on to transform our medical training and delivery systems, from overcoming a stigma that the specialty was somehow irrelevant to shaping and enacting legislation. Very high quality production - provocative, historic, intriguing, moving, captivating - a class act. Anthony Edwards narrates, a clever bit of casting. Everyone who has gone or may ever go to an Emergency Department should see this.
