90% of all 7700 squawks are related to passenger medical emergencies, not very exciting really.

Passenger medical emergenies as you say are not very interesting, however it is interesting to watch how the aircraft are routed once the emergency has been declared, especially if the aircraft are already in the hold, you can watch how they are expressed delivered for finals.
