Doctor Reacts To LOST TV Show Medical Scenes

I’ve never seen Lost, but I’ve been getting all sorts of comments lately asking me to react to the medical scenes. Turns out there were a ton of medical moments throughout the series, anchored by Matthew Fox as Dr. Jack Shephard. I reacted to the opening pilot sequence on the beach, Evangeline Lilly as Kate stitching Jack’s wound, Jack saving Charlie with some chest compressions/chest thumps, Sayid sealing Charlie’s head wound with fire, Jack performing spinal surgery on Ben’s tumor, Juliet giving Jack an appendectomy, and the wild “Do Not Harm” episode where John Locke brings Boone in with a broken leg while Claire is giving birth. So much drama. Any scenes I missed that you want me to react to in a future video? Drop them down below!

Special thanks for helping source these scenes to Brian Tochterman Jr. Erin O’Conner, Tara Bennett, and the LOST SUPPORT GROUP on Facebook!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

    Doesnt seem like Dr Mike would be too helpful on a deserted island after a crash. Some of this stuff might not work, but it's not like he is just doing things the wrong way when there is plenty of equipment available. Sure most are probably going to die, but I would hope he would at least try.

      @Jimena Martínez No, you were wrong. The scenes he shows in the video take all place in the real world where they are alive. The part of the show where they are dead is not featured in this video. Funny that you say that he clearly hasn't seen the show. Whatever you quoted there from Google is absolute nonsense.

Love watching you Mike, but you've got to watch more than just the bloody scenes haha. Oh and don't forget a lot of these shows happened 10 years ago or more so the methods may be different now. id love to have Dr Mike watch ALL of Lost, Scrubs, House, etc. video for every episode!! of course I'm biased because i love these shows too and want more Mike reacting.

    Chest compressions on television are almost always bad since you cannot compress a live actor. And they do not budget for special effects just for that.

    Even though these actors are doing bad chest compressions, I understand that you don't want to do this on a actually living being. But ig u can't say it's not smth you couldn't fix. A puppet and sum cgi. I believe you can fix this issue like that (of course I'm not an expert). Only downside is that it cost time and money.

Because the authors assume all the audience is made of imbeciles that do not realise, how stupid it’s to tell us an engine not only survived intact a crash where the plane was chopped of in pieces, but continue to produce thrust , using what fuel please? A simple fuel fire was not enough, you had to add the stupidity of the ghost in the engine wanting to eat you!👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 you watch stupid shows you end up believing Trump BS.

    In a situation like in lost why would you waste time trying to do chest compressions? I would view this more like a TCCC situation where you don’t do chest compressions because you will likely be on your own for an extended period of time and you don’t have the equipment or supplies required to support a patient like that. Even if you had enough supplies to take care of that one patient you could possibly have 2-20+ extra patients

    From what little I know about chest compression, you can kill a person by doing actual chest compression. Correct me if I am wrong but doing chest compression on working heart can disrupt it's rhythm and thus cause arrhythmia. Which I think can be lethal.

    Greeting Dr. Mike, I have one Japanese medical drama + romance that you need to check out. It's 10 episodes, it's a very very popular drama in Japan. They had couple episode (i think) that they do the chest compression, see if anything interest how their medical work act. The title is called Love Lasts Forever or in Japanese romanization (Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Dokomade mo). Hope Dr. Mike and the staff look into this. Thank you so much for reading my comment.

    Next time I'd really like to see you do Outlander. There are only 4 seasons but there are a lot of medical scenes because the protagonist is a WW1 nurse forced into medieval Scotland. It's a wonderful show and from everything I've seen I think you'll enjoy it as well. Even if most of the medicines are outdated and tools primative. Can't wait to see your reaction

    Critiquing Lost's 'medical' scenes without having watched the show and the scenes in context isn't really productive. Just like you want to know everything surrounding an injury(that hurt ankle), everything surrounding why Jack, Kate, Sayid, etc. do what they do should also be known and taken into consideration. Also, mouth-to-mouth was still accepted practice when this show was made, Jack wasn't a general practice doctor; his specialty was spinal surgery, and actual chest compressions can't be done on actors in a television show without risk of injury. It's enough to show they are being done.

    2:05 some people require to be even partially calm during a crisis like so. If there's hope of survival as a group, there's hope to make it out of the harsh situation they're in. If people go panicking in a plane crash and just think it's the end, they're not gonna live long even if they got lucky a couple times. That's one thing i started practicing: to be stoic and calm during serious moments to try and think realistically, and without emotions to act as a personal bias to my actions in the future, whether i be part of a surviving passenger of a plane crash or a different tragedy. It's a dark way to think, but you never know if, or even when you will need it. Besides, it's best to work together as a group than work on your own. How do you think humanity progressed to such an advanced state that they can fly planes across the world?
