What does a gunter mean in medical terms?

in greys anatomy they said they needed a gunter.. then later on the doctor walk in an amputated girl with another doctor inside and said.. “now this is a gunter”

In this context the term gunther was used to describe a trauma patient or patient with extensive multiple injuries that was used as a teaching case for the 5th yr residents. This was so this team of physicians would be forced to work together and find a rhythm of trust so together they could save her life. In this scenario, the group of 5th yr residents were unable to work as a team, all thought they were more important, or others simply would not step up and were run over by the others. By forcing them to treat this patient… they had to learn to work as a group and fast.

In response to SK.. the above was termed a Gunther because they are paying homage to a physician who was a cut above the rest. The above does describe it. The exercise above is likely to be termed something else in another facility.

From the official ABC Episode Guide:

Grey’s Anatomy – 802 – “She’s Gone”

Bailey and Callie are given the go-ahead to do a Gunther, which is a team building exercise. The hospital does it when folks aren’t working well together. It’s named for a doctor who rose up above his ᴘᴇᴇrs to take charge in critical situation. Cristina, April, Alex and Jackson work Susannah, the women who was trapped in a sinkhole. Who will the Gunther be? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

i’m currently watching this episode and googled meaning of gunter and found this. Haha!

Answer 6

this all is very well but as far as i’m concerned he’s not asking us to explain him what happened in the episode. he simply asks the definition of the word “gunther”. honestly, i don’t know the answer to this but i just wanted to clear up the question so that the one who does could actually answer the right question.
so what does gunther mean? it’s obviously not a word as not in dictionary. so is it a proper noun maybe? are they referring to someone? a place? an event?
