''Trauma'' was an Creator/{{NBC}} medical drama about the unsung heroes, emergency first responders. Set in the SanFrancisco Bay Area, ''Trauma'' focused on a team of paramedics: Nancy Carnahan, Tyler Briggs, Cameron Boone, Dr. Joseph "Joe" Saviano and the resident badass, Reubert "Rabbit" Palchuk.

Not to be confused with the reality series ''Trauma: Life in the E.R.''.

!!This show provides examples of:
* DeathSeeker: Rabbit has shades of this.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Rabbit, in the Pilot, before he is called out on his recklessness.
* NaiveNewcomer: Glen
* ReallyGetsAround: Nancy has a reputation at work. They were taking bets on when (not ''if'') she would sleep with the new guy.
* SacrificialLamb: Several in the first eight minutes of the Pilot, before a TimeSkip to the anniversary of their deaths exactly one year later.
* SleepCute: Nancy goes to Rabbit's apartment on the night of the anniversary of the accident in which they lost their colleagues. They share a bed, but it's completely platonic.
* StraightGay: [[spoiler:Tyler]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: '''Very''' frequent, considering the show is about paramedics who rarely follow up on the patient once they have been delivered to the hospital. Sometimes the audience is never even told if the patient survived.
** This is entirely TruthInTelevision. Paramedics rarely if ever get patient follow-ups, and only if it's a truly significant case. Patient care in EMS is totally transitory.
