Real Doctor Reacts to HOUSE M.D. | Medical Drama Review | Doctor Mike

  • Published on Apr 22, 2018
  • Once again I dove into the comments section to see what medical tv drama you wanted me to review next and it seemed like Dr. House or House M.D. was the next most popular choice. Get ready TV Doctors, because Dr. Mike is coming for you =]
    Full disclosure, I have watched a few episodes of House before but this was probably 10 years ago so I decided to go ahead and start this tv medical drama review off with the first episode ( House MD episode 1 ) of the series. I was really curious to see the difference in watching the show now that I am a licensed doctor. The last time I watched the program I was in high school and knew a tenth of the medical knowledge I know now!
    Honestly, I love this medical tv show series because I think it allows us to laugh at some of the crazy situations Hugh Laurie gets himself into. Plus It gave an interesting look at what life is like as an infectious disease doctor especially one as highly regarded as Dr. House. Obviously, the way that he practices medicine is not realistic or accurate because we don't break into people's homes nor do we treat them without explaining what we are doing. All in all, I think Dr. House is a must watch tv show if you're into medical dramas just for laughs alone.
    I hope you enjoy this episode of Real Doctor Watches House M.D. / Real Doctor Reacts to House M.D. If you want me to continue making this series please like the video and leave me a comment on which show or episode you'd like for me to review next. Love you all!

    I have, and I think I am spelling this correctly, Grand Mal seizures. we believe my MS is what caused it. if it wasn't for my seizures, I would never have had the CAT scan and found the MS that had soread across my brain and down my spinal cord.

    House, MD is a favorite of mine, although I am aware of its inconsistencies with real life medicine. I have several friends who are nurses and technicians in the field, and one who is a doctor. I'd like to hear your opinion of an episode of Star Trek the Next Generation called Ethics. It is Season 5 Episode 16. Thanks, and you've earned a new subscriber with your insightful contributions. :)

    Regarding your assessment of the show: thats kinda the whole point/concept of the show lol. It's a very... Unorthodox doctor who treats patients with rare illnesses. Kind of like Criminal Minds only follows the craziest, most interesting criminal cases (usually serial killers or terrorists). It adds to the drama. No one wants to see "House MD: The Patient Who Had the Flu" 😂

      International understanding. New information and research are incredibly important in all medical fields - instead of learning everything in their own language AND another, international language, they just use Latin.
      Therefore they are able to communicate with any other doctor worldwide, at least the basics!
      Also: in Latin, most things are self-explaining. A symptom that would need a few sentences to explain in english is perfectly explained in it's two-wordmedical name. Example: hemophilia. Hemo=blood, philia=a tendency to. So the patient has a tendency to bleed a lot, if he is having hemophilia.

    Doctor Mike, you forgot rule number one when someone codes in MR magnet, get them out of the MR room cause non- MR equipment and non-screened personnel in the magnet room = bad news (see metal in MR videos) and expensive to fix.

    Jeez, there is a thing called 'poetic license'. If TV shows got everything accurate it'd be damn boring. We're only 2:45 in and you're looking at the intricate details regarding the condition. It's a pilot for a TV show. Either way, it's entertaining to watch you watching this show. EDIT: I'm sorry. You're seriously getting annoyed at House's way of looking at things? It's a TV show, it isn't real! Jeez, if I was your patient Dr. Mike, I think I would lie just to avoid your pedantic nature haha. Dr. House clearly states in the show that his ways are unorthodox!

    For the record, I am an MRI tech and if a pt goes into anaphylactic shock or codes, the first thing we do is get the pt out of the room. We do this because a lot of medical professionals are not educated on how an MRI works. They think that just because we are not scanning that the machine is off but the machine is always on. That is why I cannot watch these medical shows 🤣 When it comes to radiology, these shows can really be inaccurate! But I love your content!

    Gotta pull that patient out of the MRI room before you do the code on her. The scalpel would have been sucked into the machine therefore become a flying projectile. MRI machine magnet stays on all the time.

    I'm fascinated by people freaking out in MRI machines. There must be something in a typical human brain that doesn't like this combination of stimuli. I wish I could understand it. Maybe it just feels wrong/unnatural/limiting. I don't like the contrast thing but about the tube itself, I couldn't care less. I could actually sleep there. But I must also admit it's helpful when I'm offered earplugs and this wee mirror placed before your eyes on this headwear instrument I can't find any name for.

    I miss House but then I loved his sarcastic sense of humour. I love this video series already and I'm only 8 minutes into this one and have 2 more to go. I hope you end up doing even more of them! I can really appreciate you explaining the scientific and doctor terminology in layman's English so even I can understand it lol. All I know is "It's never Lupus" ... except that once (or was it twice?) that it was.
    If you were to make a channel reviewing every (or almost every) episode of House and explain them, I would so watch them!!

    O.M.G!!! WHY ARE *RESIDENTS* DOING THE MRI??? IF AN MRI *TECHNOLOGIST* GOT THAT FIRST NON RESPONSIVE/GAG NOISE THEY’D JERK HER A** OUT AND HIT THE CODE BUTTON 🙄🙄🙄🙄. I feel like screaming right now‼️ Also, no one runs in the magnet room with lab coats, which are full of ‘ferrous surprises’ or stethoscopes!
    Pet peeve on *all* medical shows - they have docs, *some* token nurses, no imaging technologists, lab technologists, etc, i.e. all the REST OF THE TEAM.🙄 pretty sure my bp went up bc of this🤣

    US National Library of Medicine states the following about neurocercosis: Although accurate incidence data in the USA are not available, estimates range from 0.2 to 0.6 cases per 100 000 general population and 1.5-5.8 cases per 100 000 Hispanics. We estimate that between 1320 and 5050 new cases of NCC occur every year in the USA. The number of NCC cases reported in the literature in the USA increased from 1494 prior to 2004 to 4632 after that date.

    Having been in hospital MANY times, for different conditions/illnesses, I can vouch for the fact that not a single doctor who treated me ever behaved the way House does. They all listened to me, took the time to have the PROPER tests done, and treated me with the proper procedure(s). I've had to have a lot of different surgeries, but never did I have a complicated test procedure solely on the whim of a doctor's 'gut feeling'.
