About House, M.D.
House, also known as House, M.D., was a critically-acclaimed American medical drama television series created by David Shore and executively produced by film director Bryan Singer. The Emmy and Peabody award-winning medical drama debuted on the FOX Network on November 16, 2004, and aired its last episode on May 21, 2012.
For eight years the show brought in people from around the globe, bringing intrigue and mystery in the form of unusual medical cases in a vein reminiscent of the mysteries solved by Sherlock Holmes. Furthermore, these cases were the catalyst for the discussion of philosophical and ethical issues and decisions, a lot of which were not left with a clear victor, but all of which revealed more and more of the character of each of the different doctors that comprised the team each year. In the end, while the team didn't completely understand (or appreciate) House's methods fully, the show gives a final hurrah as each of the members walks away with something they realize was the right thing to do after all. Although the mantra "Everybody Lies" is proven over and over again, the concept that "people never change, they only come up with better lies" is tested up until the last moments as the characters (and the show) drive off into an adventure left to the imagination.
Everything is challenged, nothing is sacred, and the most profound revelations of life can be found within the 172 hours of television given over the course of the eight seasons of pill-popping, dripping sarcasm, dark humor, and intelligent storytelling ever to grace the small screen of the living room (or large screen, if that may be the case, but then...everybody lies). This wiki is intended for your perusal to catch up, read, make new or more complete connections on various subject matter, or perhaps relive the funny if outrageous times given to us by actor Hugh Laurie and company.

Three days after emergency treatment, Bob was referred to Dr. House as no doctor could figure out why he had stopped breathing. Bob started describing his symptoms to Dr. Cameron. He had felt like his throat was getting very dry, then his tongue started swelling up. Food allergies had been ruled out, one doctor thought it was merely a panic attack and the next wanted to remove his tonsils. He admitted he was having sex at the time of the attack.
Dr. Cameron reported back to Dr. House. Dr. Foreman thought it might be vocal cord paroxysms from rough sex - it can cause choking. However, there was no sign of neck trauma. Dr. Chase thought they should reexamine the possibility of food allergies. Dr. Foreman thought it was a neurological issue like progressive bulbar paralysis. However, Dr. Cameron pointed out that ALS would affect the muscles in his face first. Dr. House thought that the patient may have mistaken suffocation for choking and the problem might be in his lungs instead. He ordered further blood tests, a CT Scan of his chest and a plethysmograph.
Bob was instructed to pant for the plasismograph. It revealed decreased lung capacity indicating interstitial pulmonary fibrosis. However, the cause was unclear. Arthritis, sarcoidosis and prescription drugs had been ruled out, and he had no exposure to coal dust or asbestos. Dr. Cameron thought it was ideopathic, but Dr. House corrected her - the cause was currently unknown, but there was no evidence that it couldn't be traced to a cause. However, for the time being, Bob was stable. Dr. House wanted to wait for a new symptom to appear. At that moment, the team was paged - Bob was complaining of a severe itch and had red marks all over his chest. ....
