In this first episode, the team get straight to work. If they are to save lives, every second is vital for the trauma doctors in their search for clues. For a motor cyclist whose foot is mangled in a car accident, the team have to check every part of his body and the wreckage for clues to other injuries so that they can make the correct diagnosis.

London’s Air Ambulance doctors race to stabilize a 19-year-old woman after she is hit by a van, and the team’s investigation reveals a potential spine injury with grave consequences.

Weak, nauseous and pale, an elderly woman’s confusion makes the hunt for clues to her illness difficult. After a series of tests, the team finally make an unexpected diagnosis. After a 45-year-old cyclist with a head injury is rushed in by helicopter, the patient’s memory loss provides the team with a vital clue to his condition.

    @Richard, Not sure what your background is, but as a Paramedic we can do far less to stabilise a patient and hence we need to get them moving. A pre-hospital trauma Doctor cxan carry out emergency life-saving surgical procedures on the road, if such is found necessary. They can also do rapid sequence induction (general anaesthetic and intubatiion) if they find they need to; but this requires 360 degree access to the patient. Why rush the patient up into the ambulance, only to maybe have to move them back out again?

    Why the hell is air ambulance a charity?! I'm not going into taxes an all but the bottom line is it saves lives and should be included in NHS budget.

    I love these type of programmes and I'm an avid viewer of 24hrs in A&E. The problem I have with this particular one is the needless graphics every two minutes, it drives me to distraction and I had to stop watching the first episode after ten minutes. I'll stick to the clean-looking 24hrs in A&E from now on.

    Great programme but the echo effect's and flash in flash out stuff is not needed. Doctors and NHS do a fantastic job so no need to bling up the programme with these type of effects. Just keep it normal like 24 Hours in A&E.

    Don't worry guys, Dr Richard the pre-hospital trauma genius is below. He's better than all these world class doctors on the programme, I don't know why we bother watching when we can read his world class comments.

    An interesting programme, it's such a shame however that you can only get a doctor to see you out of hours if you have been in a serious traumatic injury. Slightly concerned that the patients spent far to long laying on the floor whilst the Doctor hammed it up for the cameras especially when the trolley was next to the patient. Pre- hospital 101, check for life threatening injuries, treat,and move. Detailed surveys should be done in the back of the ambulance on route to the hospital.

    I love shows like this and it looks promising apart from the annoying flashback voice over of the truma doctor, both myself and my wife looked at each other and said the same thing about it.
