Does Anybody Know? : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

Has anybody heard about what's going to happen on the next ER? Just curious.

By the next ER, I'm assumming you mean the next new ER, which is March 23. Anyway, Carter comes back to work and Elizabeth fights to get permission to transplant a person's brain into another person. Pretty interesting stuff. I can't wait.

I don't know about that last one...has anyone ever heard of a brain transplant being performed in real life? ER tends to be very realistic, and I'd be surprised if they dealt with a procedure that is not actually possible. In another spoiler I read that Elizabeth seeks permission to harvest a brain-dead patients organs. Could that be it?

i never heard of a brain transplant, but i would like some more info on how to get on the recipient list, thank you!

I think it is in the 3/23 epi that Corday tried to get permission to harvest a brain-dead patient's organs.

Re: brain transplants - wonder if you can nominate people for the recipient's list. I just happen to work with one or two, then there's the next door neighbor, then there's my sister-in-law and her oldest kid....

I don't know about brain transplants, though I did see this movie one time where that very operation was done. According to the movie it was the first ever (not a true story, and from the looks of it, not a very old movie). A little ironically, Mare Winningham (Amanda Lee) starred in the movie. Though I'm sure on "ER" Elizabeth fights to harvest a brain-dead patient's organs.

I saw on some science channel that doctors had successfully transplanted the head of one monkey (or gorilla) onto the body of another- not quite a brain transplant, but essentially the same thing- still...i dont see how corday could be performing something like this!
