Real Doctor Reacts To MASH TV Show

Doctor Mike

Pred mesecem

MASH was one of the most successful American sitcoms of all time, running for 11 award-winning seasons from 1972-1983. The show is set at an American Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, or MASH, in Korea during the Korean War of the 1950's. Starring Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce, an army surgeon who likes to play by his own rules, the show was a massive success, culminating in the most highly-watched series finale of all time, garnering 106 million viewers. That's all interesting history... but how accurate are the medical scenes? Today we look at the ethics of taking someone's blood without their consent, performing a tracheotomy in the field, proper behavior during surgery, how long you could hold a heart together with your fingers, and of course, CHEST COMPRESSIONS.

I would love to see you react to Alan Alda talking about his own bowel surgery. It was so very 70s but set in the 50s. My uncle was a Medic in Korea. His job was to keep them alive to make it to the MASH Hospital. I do wonder what the medical ethics were in the past both as a civilian and in the armed forces.

They're doing "meatball surgery" that's more about quantity than quality. It's about getting as many patients patched up as possible before transferring them to a full blown military hospital. They didn't have the luxury of always doing things by the books. They had to resort to unconventional methods.

One thing I will say, despite its accuracy. I've watched MASH many times. The soul of it... they were happy he was still alive. Wasted lives came in and out of their operating theater constantly. Out there for no good reason, dying for no sensible cause. Hawkeye, Trapper, BJ, Houlihan, they were just beaten down into the dirt over all the people they couldn't save and the ones that they could, if they saved them well enough, it was to put them back into the meat grinder. Saving one, against long odds, even saving his legs? Yeah, they felt it. It wasn't medically accurate, sure, but these characters were built around a message of pointless, wasted war and who that war served - certainly not the people those soldiers were being told it did. It was a funny show, and it was an achingly painful show that portrayed PTSD, depression, suicidal ideation and the death and loss of civilians, children, doctors forced to try and do no harm when all there was was harm. One exchange that rings with me forever is when Father Mulcahy remarked, "War is Hell." Hawkeye countered that no, it wasn't. Mulcahy was taken aback, and Hawkeye asked, "Who goes to Hell?" Mulcahy said, "Well, sinners, I suppose." Hawkeye said, exactly. "There are no innocent bystanders in Hell. War is war. Hell is Hell." I really love hearing your comments on the accuracy here and enjoyed your video - I just thought I'd speak up at the very last comment you made, because I feel the writing behind these characters was built around them finding that one victory in the pile of death all around them. Of course they're fictional and can't really care at all, but I think the writers wrote them such that they did.

The whole point was that half the doctors were third rate and that the Army commanders (at least to start in the show) hadn’t a clue. I’m not sure your modern ethics really applies to a 1950’s Army unit during the height of the Korean War. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I do appreciate you pointing out the inaccuracies in medical technique but this show was never meant to be taken seriously. They did have a medical advisor on set Walter D. Dishell but i am not sure of his qualifications or how much they actually listened to him? There were only 2 episodes throughout the entire show where an actual Medical Doctor was an advisor on set!

I'm a feminist. Considering the show is set in the 50's the women were treated pretty well. The male doctors treated the female nurses as equals most of the time. And although they did often make a sexually charged comment, it was never with the intention to humiliate the woman even if it might have been the end result. Also the main female characters were very strong mentally and physically, often telling the men off or making a quck clacp back joke. All while saving people's lives. If the same show was made today about for example the war in Afghanistan, it wouldn't be acceptable, but the show was made in the 70's about the 50's and that being considered, it was kinda female friendly. I need to rewatch mash.

Not sure Dr Mike picked up on the details available in the scene with Father Mulcahy and Radar and the patient with airway obstruction. Very early in the scene, Fr Mulcahy states something along the lines of, "his tongue is swollen, it's blocking the passage". Shortly after, Radar says he's not breathing. Dr Mike suggests they should have been advised to look for other causes like a tension pneumothorax or bleeding out. Granted, stop external catastrophic haemorrhage, but there had been no suggestion of that, and no amount of decompressing a tension pneumothorax was going to be helpful if an airway wasn't created- even in modern prehospital trauma management- CABC (Catastrophic external haemorrhage, AIRWAY ...). As others have said, precordial "thumps" were advocated for at least until the 1980's (for witnessed cardiac arrest). Love Dr Mike's videos, but I felt this one was under thought and under researched 😕

Let's keep in mind that M*A*S*H is set to take place during the Korean War (1950ies) so it reflects the medical knowledge and practices from that time. In several episodes, they actually figure out better ways to practice medicine.

Dude, I love you. As a RN, complex patient but tearing MASH is straight up sacrilegious & blasphemous. M.A.S.H. is a beloved series that never claimed to be a medical show. It was about the horrors of war w/medicine sprinkled in based during the Korean war. Despite this video I still love you. BTW you should watch Trapper John MD (spinoff of M.A.S.H.) P.S. You are not old. I was born while the show was in its 2nd session.

Check in with somebody who has experience as a field medic under combat conditions, especially from WWII, Korea or Vietnam before you do any more of these! According to today's standards in nice, clean, peaceful hospitals, very few, if any, casualties should have survived. However, I served with many of them and I belong to a VFW populated with even more. The conditions these doctors worked under back then would certainly not be tolerated in any modern hospital back here in the world, yet they are commonplace for armed forces doctors. By the way, the tracheotomy was being performed by Father Mulcahy, a Chaplain. He shouldn't be expected to know things that a doctor would know to do, as a matter of course.
Static Kaeder

MASH is a drama - it started out as a sitcom, but then they realized that people liked the dramatic aspects better than the comedic ones, so they got rid of Frank Burns (the guy who said "give me what I want, not what I asked for"), brought in Cnl Potter (the elderly surgeon) and Dr. Charles Emerson Winchester the 3rd (the one who talked about "meatball surgery"). It is social commentary in the context of medicine. There are lousy episodes - especially early on - and the truly breathtaking episodes make up for them. Some people have said to ask an older doctor (you are not old - you don't look my age, and I'm 44 - my father's 74) - what I can say to that is for the years that my mother and I watched this show whenever it came on, my father the MD made sure that he Left the room. He knew it was bad medicine. He's never been able to tolerate tv shows that were set in medical situations because they are so overwhelmingly false. He also knew that it was a good drama, that his family loved it, and that he had other things he could do.

50 years ago was this made, talking about a war that ended 20 years before that and yes this comedy show certainly shows it's age at times, but other things REALLY hold up and speak to the human condition so well. I last rewatched the series about 5 years ago, and some of the episodes really get you and make you think or make you feel. It is by no means an accurate documentary but it's an important piece of history at this point, a show about the Korean war, starting airing during the Vietnam war, about, in part, the horrors of war.

Okay, Mr. Dr. Beewoop! Remember, this was supposed to be happening in the field during the Vietnam war. So things are strange and weird and short cut in the field. The supposed sexual comments were likely more like tension breakers in order to keep from going insane. Also, since when can any show perform true and proper chest compressions? It would actually hurt the actor. But I love your desire to set the record straight. Points taken!!

Yeah, sorry pally. Lost me on this one - a good number of the stories in M*A*S*H* were taken directly from accounts in the early 1950s from the Korean War combat hospital that the show is based on (the 8063rd I think it was?) and you're coming at it from the perspective of a 2020s civilian doctor, not a WW2/Korean War frontline warzone doctor. Some things, like the chest compressions and the cut for the tracheotomy were more than likely exaggerated for the small CRT televisions that the show was airing on and for effect as well. Perspective shift needed. Imagine if you were dragged from your hospital by an Army draft and sent to a frontline Mobile hospital made of tents and wood and told "You've got 500 casualties coming in sometime in the next 20 minutes" and then you've got to patch them all up as quickly as possible along with 2 or 3 other doctors and a dozen orso nurses. That's the setting for this show.

2:26 "He checked the patient for a millisecond..." And yet that's still more physical examination than I have gotten from any of the 7 doctors I have had across all annual checkups I've had in the past 5 years combined. 99.99999% of the time they just walk in, look at some paperwork for about 3 minutes, order a prescription for something neither need nor want, and then walk out. This is SOP (standard operating procedure) for the VA. It took me 15 years of continuous complaints (beginning while I was still on active duty) about knee pain and 14 x-rays (all normal) before they finally agreed to do an MRI. 2 days later, I got a call from the doc saying I have a torn ligament and needed surgery to repair it. Still want to have a conversation about government run, single payer healthcare? Trust me, folks, you really don't want it. Sounds great on paper. Works about as well as a warm fart.

This show was aired in the 80’s but it is about the Korean War. And although it was meant to be a comedy it was important to show the toll it took on those who were drafted… and to show why we now have changed deployments and tours are usually around 6 to 9 months… not years like it was during the Korean War… It was a medical show but it was more about the toll war takes on a human being… But you really should watch the whole series. The show actually tried very hard to do the medical stuff correctly, they had a huge list of surgeons and doctors.. and some of the cast actually served as medics in Korea..

Yeah, my third comment in a couple of minutes. Again, showing a particular doctor (Frank Burns) doing a bad job (which was the whole point of Frank Burns-he was written as a wretched doctor who was never really a surgeon to begin with, and a wretched human being) then expecting him to be using "sequential compression devices" which I am quite sure did not exist during the time portrayed, and I'm also sure if they did exist they wouldn't be in the tool kit of a M.A.S.H. unit which was essentially a surgery in a tent at the edge of a battlefield, capable of being turn down and moved on very short notice. Maybe have someone from that era, and maybe a military doctor doing the same kind of thing today talk about it.
Ruth Baker

"Give me what I want, not what I ask for" maybe, don't know what the regulations were in mobile hospital in the Korean War in the 1950s, but that's what that particular character was intended to be, a real SOB.
Ruth Baker
Ruth Baker Pred 20 dnevi
Ok, I get the time for the chest compressions, but the way Hawkeye talks is pretty true for the early 1950s. No, you would never get away with it today, but this is well before the women's movement. You have to look at this based on the time that they are portraying, not on what norms are now. So in the next scene you ask when it was filmed, but it's not about when it was filmed, it's about when it is portrayed. Yeah, women might want to watch and get an idea of how we were treated back then.
Angel In Training
Angel In Training Pred 20 dnevi
Dr. Mike, I hate it when you apply modern thoughts to medicine that is supposed to represent the past. Stop doing that. It makes you sound like an idiot. Of course the medicine from the Korean War (1951-1955~) isn't going to hold up to the medicine of today. Some of the stuff in the show was fantasy, but some of it was based on stories that came out of the war itself by actual veterans. Also, women were commonly treated with misogyny. Have you looked at common advertisements of the era? Have you watched MASH, the movie? It was far more crude than what appeared on the weekly television series and I wager a LOT more accurate to the time. I understand you want to give viewers what they ask, but please bother to do a little research on the medicine of the time that the shows are set. Because you are spouting all the ways it wouldn't be accurate, but seem to have no knowledge as to whether that holds true based on what people knew THEN.
Ruth Baker

Filmed in the '70s, and SET in the late 40s early 50s. Also remember that it started as a (silly) comedy about absurdist characters in the middle of war, and evolved into an absurdism about comedi-tragic characters in the grinding horror of war. There are frequent mentions that the MASH isn't properly staffed, supplied, nor safe, doesn't have enough time to work, can't stop to work the right way because they are constantly flooded with more patients than they can treat. They are essentially doing a sort of secondary triage in a lot of episodes, getting patients just stable enough to not die for a few hours while they try and keep the rest of the current batch of casualties alive, then send off as many as they can to other mobile hospitals or to better facilities further from the front, then work through the ones that stay. And yeah, it's not very realistic, except for the parts that hit entirely too close to reality. Not the medical practice as such, nor the precise military formalities, but the texture of the social situations.
