Chicago Med - Have you seen those graphics?

One of my favorite shows to watch on Hulu is Chicago Med! Its a show based in the Chicago Emergency Department, and the staff are always dealing with crazy emergencies plus their own personal problems. Its kind of like a modern day soap opera, reminds me of what my mom used to watch, General Hospital. LOL

I have been in the medical field for a little over 10 years, so these kinds of things interest me alot and I just like watching those kinds of shows! My husband on the other hand, cannot watch Chicago Med with me because it gets pretty graphic with the medical procedures they do!!

They make everything look so incredibly real when they have to do crazy emergency surgeries or life threatening procedures, i think that's why my husband can't stomach it. I find it super cool, and I have been mind blown about how the graphics are just so accurate and real, I wonder how they get it to look so real?

Its obviously fake, but how do they do it, is it animated on a computer? Is it just like silicone replicas? Does anyone know? LOL

Thanks all!

I haven't seen Chicago Med and I don't think I would be able to watch it. I can't stomach any blood and bits so anything that gets graphic like that is a no go for me.

I remember watching my husband's face as he watched everything they did when they operated on me for my c-section. The only time he went white and looked like he was going to pass out was when he saw out daughter for the first time LOL. All the blood and gross stuff didn't bother him one bit but becoming a father nearly knocked him out!

I really hate this show! I don't know how you watch people getting cut wide open lol. I watch it for like 5 minutes and my stomach feel funny and my chest feels tight. You have seen alot in your days including death. The medical field is no joke i know i could never do it. Personally with the way technology is i wouldn't be surprised if most of it was digital but i could be wrong. They have life like replicas nowadays so maybe its a mixture of both? Their ius a small chance that its all real and these actors are being sacrificed for our viewing pleasure. We need someone on the inside so we can get all the secrets of Hollywood! I wonder if they have any shows that shows this kind of stuff on Netflix or Hulu, That would be awesome lol! Awesome topic i think its great but i still hate Chicago Med. lol!

I bet they're doing a lot of CGI VFX, computer with generated visual effects, probably with the help of mannequins.
I also don't really like medical emergency type movies, the only TV show I've watched in this category was Dr. House. The weren't very graphic but they had cool graphics, especially at the start of every episode.

Oh I love stuff like this! I'm not at all squeamish and can handle and stomach stuff like this. Partly because like you, I'm so interested in how it all works. The good thing about medical shows like this these days, is how accurate they are and how real they make it look. But more than that, it's done in such a way as to be educational as well. Like they show you what a mans heart might look like if he was a smoker or show you what a tumor might look like as they cut it out. That sort of thing. I think they use a mixture of both mannequins and CGI too. CGI has come a long way today and it's really really hard to tell the difference between what's real and actually on the screen, and what's been added in later. And it's that same development in CGI, along with good actors and storylines that make shows like this such a success! Chicago Med - Have you seen those graphics?

yes, i agree video editing has come such a long way that you can never tell what has been edited, where things have been replaced or anything. but it is very cool how everything is made to look so real and also be so educational!

I am a huge fan of Chicago Med! I watch every new episode as it's aired and love the new episodes they push out every week!

Last October they did a One Chicago Day and each show went live on Facebook showing you how they do things such as with Chicago Fire, how they create the fires and with Chicago Med how they work on patients and make it look so real. They do use dummies so to speak as well as real people. I don't know if you have noticed but on certain scenes when they are due to work on a patient whether it be to insert a tube into their throat or to operate on them, the camera always focuses on something else for a few seconds before going back, that is when they make the switch from a real person to a dummy for them to continue.

It really is clever how they do what they do. If you look on YouTube I am sure there will be a lot of video's on there showing you from the One Chicago Day, really interesting stuff!

I also like Chicago med but not because of the graphics,Lol! I like it because of the story line. I like to see how the staff handle the battles of their daily lifes. I don't necessarily find it toooo graphic. I don't love them but they don't turn me away from watching the TV show. I think maybe they use animals like apes who kind of have the same organs as humans, or maybe the use dead people( I hope not) Or maybe they make props that look like real human organs. It would be interesting to find out what they really do,
