Marius Rimaitis on Anesthesia. Myths and realityDoctor, Anesthesiologist, PhD studentSome time ago
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.

Ordinary life of an anesthesiologist Did you know that anesthesiologists give their patients medications that immediately cause potentially lethal physiological changes? And we do it on a daily basis. The point is that we know what we are dealing with, and manage to end up with anesthesia related mortality of less than 1 in 100 000. Anyone curious about that?

What is reality? In my humble point of view just an itty bitty accident. Whatever the universe may be we are just it expiriencing itself. The brain just processes our surroundings and that we call life. There are physical laws that have to be followed so if you`d simulate the big bang a million times the outcome would be always the same. Everything that is going to happen already happened. Time is just an illusion and a way for our brains to process everything. I am scared and sad, yet i don`t know why. I hope you guys are doing well.

The probability of the universe being a simulation? Nope. It’s a I’ll-formed theory. Kind of like how 5G has caused COV-SARS-2. The universe was formed on a serious of chemical reactions and physics to create the Big Bang, information were all taught in school and is readily available on accredited sources online.
