Plot Synopsis

SHOCK TRAUMA: EDGE OF LIFE is a one-hour reality series that tells the parallel stories of doctors, nurses and patients at the R Adam's Cowley Shock Trauma Center on University of Maryland's Baltimore campus, where only the most critically-injured patients in Maryland are transported. With a 97% survival rate and more than 8,000 patients annually (compared to the typical 3,000 per year), the Center treats gunshot wounds, unconscious and unresponsive car crash patients and victims from the violent Baltimore protests. In the premiere episode, viewers meet Evan who rolls his ATV on the ice, Robert who suffers from severe frostbite and may risk amputating his hand, and Joe, who was mangled by a snow blower and loses consciousness after falling down the stairs. With possible multi-organ trauma, the team at the Shock Trauma Center race to save their patients' lives.
