Are babies operated on without anesthesia


Leave the archive and display this page in the standard design: Babies previously operated on without anesthesia?




Nonsense, right? I recently read that in the magazine "Eltern" and with the best will in the world I can't imagine it. Allegedly, it used to be thought that babies had no pain sensation and therefore only relaxed. Does anyone know anything about this?

Unfortunately no nonsense. Was actually done like this in the past. I don't know what interventions all of that involved, but my boss recently told me about surgery on babies that used to be done without anesthesia. Under all cannon, I think. Even when it comes to little things such as rinsing the tears, I find it completely banana in awake toddlers. It is more uncomfortable than painful (although the piercing of Hasner's membrane would probably also have to be associated with pain stimuli, if necessary), but that is also not okay. I think you underestimate what trauma you can do there.

hey - the "rumor" is at least spread, I saw that years ago (before I was with the Medis or even thought of it) in a documentary about fruits. There was the reason that the baby was in pain but couldn't remember it: - ((

I can't judge the truth of the matter, I tend not to believe it. Actually, I just mean to say that it is a common notion in "medical literature for laypeople".

P.S. When Muriel says there, I believe it, although it sounds pretty cruel: - ((

What does "earlier" mean?

What does "earlier" mean?

Good question! Larrey also amputated the lower leg of soldiers without anesthesia.

I have no idea what exactly was called earlier. My boss passed his exams sometime in the mid-80s and noticed it. But I guess that something like that might have been dependent on the house.

Did that mean more in relation to the original question ...


My question was what ops. the spleen asks and how long ago that should have been or whether that also includes the eye ops. your boss could mean.

I'm actually a bit unsorted today ...

Okee, the chaos is clearing ;-)

What does "earlier" mean?
Since premature babies and infants have (can) be operated on with a chance of success. I guess the 50s to the 80s of the last century.

My question was what ops.

Everything that hurts and you would like to have an anesthetic yourself. Laparotomy, inguinal hernia, cardiac surgery, hemangioma resection, etc.

waaah - did they operate on me without anything clever - should I have a look ... how long are the op reports kept again?

In the case of young animals, opinions still differ today ("reduced pain perception" and similar blah blah) - why not some wild theories in toddlers / babies ?!

Well, in the seventies they operated with anesthesia. And the ENT specialists who were supposed to rob me of my "polyps" were also very happy about that. :-)) Neither the sedative nor nice persuasion helped me. And gas anesthesia stinks badly! :-(

And gas anesthesia stinks badly! :-(

Ah Funkel also fell victim to the nasty ether anesthesia ?! :-biscuit

I have no idea what the 77 or 78 used. In any case, it smelled disgusting! And that they held my hands and feet was also unfair! Three against one ...: - ((and then also get the stinky stuff on your nose. BÄÄÄÄÄHH !! (you can tell that the retrograde amnesia definitely did NOT work)

Yeah ... that must have been the Aether stuff. For me it was 84 and 85! : - ((They also held me ... I was allowed to choose whether my ma gave me the anesthetic or I could sit on her lap ... oh dear, those were still methods! * Shake head *

All the flurans like sevoflurane also smell like ether ... so it hasn't gotten any better ...

Nitrous oxide is now excluded, it doesn't stink ...

Here the same year - although I don't really know how it was - the 1st birthday came later ;-) - but I probably didn't like it, according to my mother, I was hoarse from roaring ...
