World Anaesthesia Day 2020: History, Significance, Wishes and Quotes
World Anesthesia Day or National Anaesthesia Day is celebrated on October 16 to mark the first successful demonstration of diethyl ether anaesthesia in 1846.
It is considered as one of the significant events in the history of medicine and was given in an operating theatre at the Massachusetts General Hospital. This discovery helped the patients to undergo surgical treatments without any pain associated with them.
Since 1903, special events are organised to celebrate this remarkable day. The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists celebrates World Anaesthesia Day every year. In this event more than 134 societies representing anesthesiologists from more than 150 countries take part.
Anaesthesia is a department of medicine and is divided into 4 categories:
1- General anaesthesia
2- Regional anaesthesia
3- Monitored anaesthesia care
4- Local anaesthesia
