14 - MOVIE MEDICINE: Part 1

Medicine in the Movies! This week we examine medical procedures in cinema. First up we dissect Pulp Fiction, and the classic Mia Wallace overdose scene. Then, we move onto the post-apocalyptic hit Mad Max:Fury Road. Dr Mel Herbert, Dr Jess Mason & Dave Mason discuss Furiosa's tension pneumothorax and the blood-transfusion between Max and Furiosa.
