When the temperature falls to new lows, the camp suffers. The wounded come in with low temperatures and frostbite. Winchester gets a winter suit from his parents and generously gives the gloves to Margaret, a gesture he immediately regrets and tries to undo. Written by
Hawkeye orders a nurse to put a tube down a patient and use warm D and W to warm the patient.
This process is called gastric lavage and is always done with saline solution (as known as 0.9 solution). The solution Hawkeye refers to is not called that it's referred to as D5 (the D5 stands for Dextrose 5%) and is not suitable for lavage. See more »
This is one of many episodes that take place in the winter in Korea. Everyone is freezing and it is necessary to keep the casualties warm. One man in particular is suffering from intense hypothermia. The second plot is a huge down jacket that is sent to Charles by his family. In a moment of kindness, he gives Margaret his gloves and then decides he wants them back. Everyone envies it and, of course, Charles is a complete ass about it. A third plot is Klinger, who, while on guard duty, finds himself deaf when a series of land mines go off due to the cold. All these things tie together as Radar is forced to move all the heaters into the hospital.
