Sklif (Ep2) A depressed musician and a youth with stab wounds
A musician, who was being treated for depression, overlooked the dangers of mixing his medication with alcohol. The resulting cocktail of drugs put him in a deep coma. Luckily for him, he was discovered by his wife, a medical professional, whose quick response might have saved his life. Now Sklif’s emergency room doctors need to figure out the exact cause of his condition and find a way of bringing him out of the coma.
Meanwhile, another patient is admitted: a young man has received multiple stab wounds after a drunken fight got tragically out of hand. His lungs have been punctured, and the doctors suspect serious complications. The patient’s mother is also there – she came to the hospital as soon as she heard about her son being attacked. Now she needs reassurance from the doctors that her child will be alright.
