Next Episode of 24 Hours in A&E is
Cameras film around the clock in some of Britain's busiest A&E departments.
Leon has been in a head-on collision with a car. Graham has injured himself playing rugby and lost feeling in his arms and legs. Elliott, who's four, has got a foreign object stuck up his nose.
Sufia, who's five, was dragged under a car while she was on her way to school. Evadney has a badly burnt arm. She was standing near a bonfire when an aerosol exploded in it.
Zach, who's 25, is rushed to A&E after completely severing four fingers in a building site accident. A&E staff and plastic surgeons work hard to assess the damage and stem the extremely bloody wound. Zach and his girlfriend Betsy wait anxiously to find out if his fingers can be re-attached. Former teacher Ricky, who's 85, has hurt her back after falling at home, and 10-year-old Daquon was hit by a motorbike when he was on his way to school. He has memory loss and a badly broken arm.
In this episode we follow staff as they unravel the mystery of 54-year-old Richard, who arrives, suffering symptoms of a suspected stroke. Neurology registrar Vijay works quickly to assess what may have happened and Richard is sent to CT. But whilst undergoing his scan he has a further seizure, which gives Dr Vijay a strong indication that his symptoms may not have been caused by a stroke. Meanwhile, 76-year-old Peter arrives in A&E with a severe head injury, covered in blood, but it's not clear what exactly has happened to him. As Dr Fiona tries to get to the root cause, Peter is declared a code red emergency and doctors needs to give him an emergency blood transfusion.
