World Anaesthesia Day

World Anaesthesia Day

World Anesthesia Day (World Anesthesia Day), which is celebrated in many countries every year on October 16, is traditionally considered by anesthesiology and intensive care specialists and all specialists in this field of medicine to be their professional holiday. Anesthesia - loss of nerve sensation. Artificial anesthesia is used for pain relief during surgery, dentistry, trauma, etc., as well as in other areas of medicine.

The history of this field of medicine began in the middle of the 19th century - on October 16, 1846, an American dentist Thomas Morton performed the operation under ether anesthesia. For the first time, the successful use of anesthesia to create general anesthesia was publicly demonstrated. As an anesthetic, he used diethyl ether inhalation. Therefore, October 16 is considered to be the World Anesthesia Day.

Drugs and anesthesia methodology are constantly being improved, as well as the knowledge and skills of specialists in this field of medicine, who today deservedly receive congratulations from management, colleagues and friends on their professional holiday.
