Save Your Life Tonight is a factual entertainment series produced by WildBear Entertainment for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and was filmed in front of a live studio audience at Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH).

Save Your Life Tonight is a unique studio based medical series that explores Australia’s top 10 health issues in an exciting and entertaining way. Driven by charismatic host Andrew Daddo, along with resident GP Dr Liz Marles and a panel of leading experts, each episode is a fast-paced, dynamic exploration of the causes, symptoms, treatments and, most importantly, prevention of these leading health issues.

But Save Your Life Tonight doesn't just talk about the issues, it shows the issues! Save Your Life Tonight features real patients, real doctors, real tests, real diagnoses, and real surgical procedures – live on stage!

For the "Heads Up" episode, the program explores the issues of mental health. Only half of the Australians suffering from severe mental heath issues are receiving treatment. Featuring Ian Hickie on the panel, we also see a young mum face her crippling bird phobia with the help of a Wedge Tailed Eagle.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
