- He's dissecting.
Try amiodarone.
Might get a rhythm.
We gave tenecteplase.
- What? - He had ST elevation.
Thrombolytics to an aortic dissection? We didn't know it was a dissection! He's bleeding into his chest.
- Thoracotomy tray.
- No! He'll bleed all over the floor.
We gotta do something.
O- neg cryo and FFP.
We can do a chest tube to confirm the hemothorax and start a line.
Okay, let's go! Prep the chest.
I was trying to have fun.
Is that a crime? No.
Go have fun.
If I can be left waiting in the street, I can certainly walk home by myself.
Why do you make a big problem out of everything? - Like you have an insect in your anus.
- Hey, it's "bug up my ass," Luka.
"Bug up my ass.
" If you're gonna insult me, at least get the words right.
- How's this? Stop being such a bitch.
- Okay, fine.
As soon as you grow up.
You're so mature.
You don't even know what you want.
Yes, I do.
I want to go home.
You're like the schoolgirl who can have any boy and treats them like crap.
Why don't you just call me a whore and get it over with? I'm tired of it.
You're not that pretty.
You're not that special.
I'm pretty enough in the dark, aren't I? You're never happy.
I don't think you're capable of being happy.
Six months ago, you didn't care if I was happy.
If you're not depressed, you're just angry.
And you're married to a ghost.
- At least I treat you with respect.
- Oh, I know.
You're a saint.
- Thora-Seal.
- I can't thread the guide wire.
Rotate the bevel 90 degrees.
- Damn it! - No good.
- Looks like his entire blood volume.
- How much O-neg do we have? Third and fourth unit are up.
Get another four! We need that FFP! - Where is Weaver? - We've been paging her for 15 minutes.
- Doc Magoo's.
- What? She said something about going to Doc Magoo's.
Right.
I know.
You're always so good, and I'm so bad.
I'm sick of being patient.
I'm a mess, you're so understanding.
- And I'm a burden.
- Carter, your mother, your moods- - Why don't you just break up with me? - I think you want me to.
If I'm such a horrible person, how could you possibly want to be with me? I don't know how to be with you or help you- I don't want help.
I don't want help.
I don't want to be pitied.
I don't want to be saved.
Okay.
- Okay.
I give up.
- Okay? What does that mean? What does that mean? Why don't you- I'm done! I'm done, okay? Carter can have you.
Okay.
Okay.
The catheter is passing.
- Any pulse with compression? - Weak one.
- Got the plasma.
- Yeah.
Run it in here.
- Are we cracking him or not? - He can't clot.
He'll exsanguinate.
He already has.
- Please get Weaver, John.
- Haleh, can you page her again? If we're gonna try this, we gotta do it now.
I am not opening his chest without Weaver.
Could you get her? Now? Okay.
Go ahead, prep.
4-0 silk.
- We can't wait.
- Wait! - Slow down, Doogie! - He's got a tube in his throat! You were gonna draw a blood gas.
- Is that his doctor? - Yes.
We need a private room! Dr.
Weaver? Wait.
Where are you? Chest-tube output is 4 liters.
Ruptured aortic dissection.
We gave 40 of tenecteplase.
Put the scalpel down.
He's had cryoprecipitate, 4 units FFP.
- He might clot.
- He'll keep lysing the thrombin.
Gotta open the chest to fix the defect.
It's a proximal lesion.
Can't cross-clamp.
- Can we try anything else? - Stop compressions.
You killed him.
- Almost done, okay? - One more.
One more.
Hey.
You okay, Reece? Doctor will make it better.
Right? I know.
Mom's gone.
Finished.
I'll have the nurse dress it, and then you're free to go.
All right, thanks.
I can remove the suture, right? In seven days.
Listen, they're transferring her to the morgue till morning.
I've gotta find a funeral home.
- You call the parents? - Y eah, they're on their way.
- Listen, Roger, tell them that I'm- - It's cool.
Can you take him tonight? I'm gonna have to stay.
Yeah.
I was going to anyway.
Right, right.
Thanks.
Reece, you have to go with your father tonight, okay? But I'll see you tomorrow or the next day, okay? I love you too.
You don't know what Marfan's looks like? He's an artist.
His brother said he was up all week.
I was thinking cocaine.
Did you check the blood pressures in both arms? - I don't think so.
- Did you or didn't you? No.
You didn't recognize the widened mediastinum? Not until after he arrested.
Apical-capping tracheal shift to the right is classic for a dissection.
I was told that it was clear.
- I meant, no hemothorax.
- Wait a minute.
You didn't look at the x-ray before you signed off on thrombolytics? Jing-Mei.
Jing-Mei? - No.
I should have.
- Yeah.
You should have! Look, you didn't answer your page.
We had to make a quick decision.
That's your job! Make quick decisions based on the information available.
You had the right information.
You didn't bother to look at it.
- You've never made a bad call? - Not as stupid and lethal as this one.
Then show up and make it yourself.
We paged you three times! In a perfect world, Dr.
Malucci I wouldn't subject any patients to your care.
If you knew your ass from your elbow, or even gave a damn - I do give a damn.
I do give a damn.
- this man might still be alive! He dissected into his coronaries.
He'd probably never survive surgery anyway.
Well, we'll never know that, will we? The rest of the family should be screened.
I'll talk to the brother.
- Wait.
Dave, I'll do it.
- No.
I will.
No one talks to anyone about this case.
Is that clear? - Is that clear? - Yes.
Ice that back, Carter.
- Get up and help me! Mark! - What? Get up and help me! There's poop all over the bassinet.
It's running down her legs.
- You didn't tighten the bloody diaper! - God! What time is it? - Now! - Okay, okay, okay.
- I heard her crying from downstairs! - I'm sorry.
I must have passed out.
- I told you to double up! - I thought I did.
- Look at this! - Calm down.
It's not fatal.
Yeah, okay! You take her! I'll run her bath.
Why don't you just go back to bed, and I'll take care of her? Don't make me the bitch just because you can't follow simple instructions! I was just offering to take care of it.
Splendid job you've done of it so far! Fine.
You take care of it.
I've got a shift in three hours.
What do you think I'll be doing in three hours? I'm the feeding trough! - If I could breast-feed, I would.
- Oh, great.
Great! You take it! Take it all! The sore nipples, the rashes, the hemorrhoids the leaking in your trauma gown, the public humiliation sleep deprivation, the incontinence, for goodness' sake.
It's all yours! There you go.
Watch out for that volcano next time.
Malik, can you dress that toe and fit him for a cast shoe? Sorry, I'm off.
Can I help you? Did anyone turn in a pager? No.
I don't think so.
Carter, I saw your lady with the nose bleed.
I'm scheduling her for a septoplasty next week.
- She had a defect? - That you could drive a truck through.
I guess 2 grams of coke a day will do that.
- Nap yet? - I was supposed to be off last night.
You're not in Surgery.
Don't punish yourself.
Go.
No.
I'm on at noon.
I'm just gonna go pass out.
Bad idea.
You know what they say: "The longer you stay, the longer you stay.
" Conni, I need you to dress a toe for me in Curtain 2.
- After my break.
- Y eah, whenever.
Reece, what's wrong? Bad dreams? You want to sleep here? Okay.
It's okay.
It's okay.
