    Minor nitpick, but M*A*S*H is set during the Korean War, not the Vietnam War. You're thinking of China Beach.

    Not only is that dudes chest compressions weak (you should be goin about 2 inches deep per compression or 4-5 cm for my non imperial friends) he's also going really slow you should be going at a rate of like 100-120 compressions per minute, I'd doubt he'd even get 80 at that rate. 3:15

    at 10:54, it is said that the operation at the M*A*S*H unit was during the Vietnam war. This is incorrect. M*A*S*H eas set during the Korean war.

    The cerebral angiogram in The Exorcist was how brain tumours were diagnosed before CT or MRI scans of the head. They are looking for a tumour "blush" or a tangle of blood vessels feeding a temporal lobe tumour.
