Into The Unknown: Doctors On Call
Into The Unknown: Doctors On Call - S1E2: Nepal Earthquake
When disaster strikes in Asia, Singapore General Hospital is ready at a moment's notice. Driven by emotional first-hand testimony, the series tells the story of Asia's most catastrophic disasters from the perspective of the doctors, who went beyond the call of duty to save lives.
Episode One provides an up-close look inside the SGH burns unit. Doctors, nurses and skin transplant specialists used creative, cutting-edge techniques to treat a young Singaporean girl, who suffered 80% burns in one of Taiwan's worst ever fires caused by combustible powders.
Episode Two takes us to Nepal, where a team of specially selected emergency doctors from SGH and the Singapore Armed Forces were rushed out to Kathmandu after a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake left thousands dead in 2015.
With gripping reconstructions and original archives, this series takes you to the heart of the action, whether it is the operating theatre or a makeshift medical tent in the epicentre of a disaster zone.
