Did you know?
Medical Trivia for some light relief
Boston dentist William T.G. Morton was the first person to publicly demonstrate the use of ether as an effective anaesthetic in 1846.
The word 'Anaesthesia' is based on the Greek word "anaisthesis," which means insensibility or loss of sensation. It was suggested by physician Oliver Wendell Holmes after viewing Morton's demonstration.
