The Surgeon (2005) - 1x07 - Episode 7

Plot Outline
Chris Handel has an abscess on the top of the crevice between his buttocks. Draining and packing it is a common procedure, which Eve has performed many times. But on the table Chris’s temperature rises dangerously. Chris develops malignant hyperthermia a life-threatening condition where the patient’s temperature suddenly begins to rise – and doesn’t stop. The team do everything they can to lower his temperature. They know if it hits 41 degrees Chris’ brain will melt.

As tensions between the surgical team escalate, Eve defends a patient's request not to be resuscitated.
