Marius Rimaitis on Anesthesia. Myths and realityDoctor, Anesthesiologist, PhD student
Anestehesia and Aviation. Not only capital A’s in common... Have you ever seen a ducumentary series on airplane crash investigation? Almost everyone has experienced a plane flight. The more attentive ones will have noticed three phases: take off-cruise-descent. The first and the last ones are the moments where you are required to stay seated with a seatbelt on. All of this is for a simple reason - dangerous disturbances and crashes most often occur then. General anesthesia has three phases as well: induction-maintenance-emergence. Analogically, anesthesia-related complications are also most common after the induction and during emergence. By the way, outcomes of critical mistakes in anesthesia and aviation are also the same... However, contemporary anesthesia safety is rapidly increasing with improving education and equipment. Millions of people experience it without any complications every day. The risk of death from anesthesia is comparable to that of about 50 to 100 plane flights. How do you classify such a risk? It is up to you.

Please share snippets about how to do stuff, how to read stuff, how to watch stuff, how to craft things, how to look for things, how things work, what happened and why, where to go and how. Stop wasting people time with yet another mentalist guru bullsh*t about money success and happiness. This is not Medium.
