  • They would take people off the surgery they could sacrifice (most likely a nurse or intern/resident and then those people would look after the doctor in pain while paging a qualified doctor to help the situation.

  • They would call the nurses or the emercency staff to help the fallen doctor, meanwhile the others would continue the operation.

    • to do what? normally it takes a team of doctors along with the fact that time is limited... what would they do with the doctor with a heart attack?

    • A regular doctor isn't trained to perform surgery, hence they have a profession called surgeons.

  • I think the patient takes priority, another team would come to aid of doctor

  • They'd work on the doctor until the cardiovascular unit got there and took him away then they'd finish the surgery on the patient

  • if the patient is a tramp and the doctor is a male.

    Statistically tramps live longer then men, therefore the male doctor is less likely to survive, therefore working on the male doctor would be priority.

  • There'll be enough backup resources to work on both. They're in a hospital after all.
