    Just watching a woman with TB in Holby & Dr Hope has got dressed up in a big white suit (like an astranaut) to operate on her.

    Would this really happen?

    yes, in certain cases - primarily due to TB being a highly infectious respiratory disease. still looks amusing tho!

    What makes me laugh is when someone has a cardiac arrest, they revive them in record time and then promptly walk away!!! When I worked in a hospital and had the regulatory yearly resus update, our tutor told us that nearly 80% of people that have a cardiac arrest in hospital die! (don't quote me on the exact numbers, but you get the picture).
