As first responders, the odds of patient survival are not always in our favor. But that does not stop us from working quickly to provide the highest level of care for the chances of defying those odds. In this episode, a 10 year-old boy wrecks on his bicycle, a fairly common occurrence and one that rarely requires air transport, yet when our team arrives on scene, his vitals crash in front of their very eyes. What's going on? And what actions do they take to save his life? An inspirational, harrowing and odds-defying episode of AMPED awaits you this holiday season.
