The idea with a show like “Chicago Med” is you want to continue to show impressive feats when it comes to modern medicine. Sometimes, you are able to do that within the confines of the hospital, but there are some times here and there where something else is required. It’s difficult, it’s challenging, but out in the field is where the real magic can truly happen. It’s difficult, but it brings out the best in anyone who puts on that stethoscope.
On next week’s new episode entitled “Extreme Measures,” we’re going to see Will, April, and Noah tested like they’ve rarely been before thanks to what happened at the Chicago Marathon. As per usual, there are many other stories that are going to be transpiring over the course of the episode, and aside from medicine, you’re getting a personal update on a character, as well.
Synopsis – “A car accident that occurs at the Chicago Marathon leaves a victim in critical condition and tests the mettle of Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss), April (Yaya DaCosta) and her fourth-year medical resident brother Noah (guest star Roland Buck III), who must perform a difficult procedure in the field. A mother brings in her 8-year-old girl experiencing a sudden hearing loss and Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) is left to tend to the case, which takes a complicated turn. Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) deals with Olga (guest star Betty Buckley), a woman who is malnourished, prompting him to bring in Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) to help assess the case. Meanwhile, Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) takes measures to get her personal life in order.”
Promo – This one’s powerful, since we’re not just talking about the marathon crisis — it’s also about decisions that could haunt our doctors if they go the wrong way. You have to be used to this in this profession, but that doesn’t make it easier.
