I know the ways of Fark are very mysterious, but why one earth would you link to MEGA949.COM!! site for a simple UPI story.

Great! No mention of the fine people who administer anesthesia and those who perform surgery, and their assistants, as contributing to the decline in perioperative deaths.

So they did a study about themselves, that sounds reliable.

Such are the hazards of using anesthesia drugs to sleep. I wonder if it's really sleep though, I've never felt particularly rested after going under. Just the opposite usually.

40-50 years of advances in monitoring equipment, improved anesthetics, and a large pool of specially trained doctors (anesthesiologists) had better have shown a massive improvement.

I know what you mean. Been under at least 4 times, never felt like I woke up refreshed at all

tonsillectomy, motorcycle accident (bone resetting), 3 knee surgeries, i think you can count the dental surgery (wisdom teeth), but awake for the eye surgeries. so probably 6 times.

Then there's this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malignant_hyperthermia

Maybe anesthesiologists are becoming better at spotting the symptoms of MH?

As someone who is sitting in a labor and delivery room right now - just after my wife got an epidural - I am getting a kick out of this article...

Congratulations to you and your wife. Hope all goes well today. Post a pic of the newest Farker/-ette.

Better at recognizing it early, and better at being ready for it if happens (knock, knock, knock on wood)

Having had surgery this past Friday where I had to be put under and intubated, I'm getting a kick out of this thread.

As an anesthesiologist, let me just say, "That's right, biatches. SCIENCE!"

MH is extremely rare. Treating it is only necessary if one let's it happen; that is, the best "treatment" is prevention and that just involves asking EVERY patient if they or a family member has had problems with anesthesia in the past. That said, it can still happen without a positive history.

Sleep well tonight, kiddies!

You, too? I wonder how many of us there are on here. Get back to work!

"During the same period, the risk of dying from any cause within 48 hours of surgery has decreased by about 88 percent"

And we thought that post-surgery death 100 years ago were bad.
