Episode #101Z

KQED 9: Wed, Sep 3, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

Battlefield medicine moves from the trauma wards of Camp Bastion field hospital in Afghanistan, to cutting edge medical research labs, to reveal the innovations that are shaping medical treatment in the 21st century. The program meets the medical pioneers behind procedures that have seen the survival rate amongst injured servicemen and women rise to 90%. Designed for the war zone, these developments are already making waves in emergency rooms, from spray-on skin cells to heal burns, to innovative surgical techniques like rebuilding damaged hands from scratch - using rib bones. It also meets the innovators in medical research who are looking to revolutionise healthcare for both military and civilian patients with ground breaking developments: mind-controlled prosthetics for amputees and electrodes that allow totally blind casualties to 'see' again. Offering a fascinating insight into the remarkable working lives of medical professionals in extraordinary circumstances, this documentary looks at how today's warfare is helping to create tomorrow's treatments.
