Discovery Health

I'm watching Discovery Health Channel. I try not to watch medical problems when I'm at home since it's all I see at work. But the hospital I work at is featured. I remember the camera crews walking around a few months ago and it's interesting to see how things are portrayed. Seems like most of the things focused on are surgical procedures. I guess that makes good TV. Being an anesthesiologist I see that they gloss over much of what we do. Oh well. It's also all very melodramatic too. Not that the situations aren't critical, but things are so black and white on TV. I remember speaking to one of the camera women. She said to me, that it's a few hundred hours of footage for every hour of television. I guess you can tell any story when you can edit so much out.
