Laughing gas for wisdom teeth removal?
Several other users apparently had something they only THINK was laughing gas because some of their information is wrong. Laughing gas only affects you while it's being administered -- while you breathe it. When the dentist or surgeon is finished, the gas is turned off, you will be breathing regular oxygen, and there will be no side-effects. It would not last for an hour or 2 after you leave the office. It's completely out of your system since you're not breathing it anymore. Also, for most patients, it only makes them very relaxed. There's no saying anything "goofy" or "telling secrets".
How do we know that people are unconscious when they are asleep and/or under anesthesia and not in a conscious state of continuous 'forgetting'? From what I understand, memory systems are known to be in "not-recording" mode at these times.
Consciousness during general anesthesia is a murky area.Medically, when someone is under deep anesthesia of the sedative variety, which is 90% of drugs, they are really out. Their neural activity is depressed, their brain waves are different, and they are completely unresponsive. For really deep anesthesia, people would stop breathing if it weren't for the automatic ventilator that breathes for them.However for light anesthesia, and for dissociative anesthetics (nitrous oxide gas at the dentist's office, or ketamine), it is not completely clear what is going on. For oral surgery, like getting wisdom teeth pulled, it is common to use "conscious sedation". With conscious sedation, the person is still responsive and groggy, but afterwords they typically don't remember anything. Often amnestics -- drugs that block memory formation -- are used in combination with pain killers and consciousness dissociatives to create the so-called twilight consciousness state. What goes on in that state is hard to say, since people bring few stories back with them.There are also occasional horror stories from earlier eras where ketamine was used with muscle relaxants -- or worse, paralytics -- in which the person is conscious and aware, but immobile and appears unconscious from the outside. In such cases, heart rate increases might give away the conscious state, however often beta blockers are also used to keep the heart rate stable, which masks that potential sign. In the clinical terms of medicine, "intraoperative awareness" (waking up during surgery) is considered a "complication" in the field of general anesthesia. Everyone, of course, hopes this never happens to them.
How can I make sleeping gas?
So you want to prepare sleeping gas a.k.a Knock out gas or in medical terminology general anesthetic which is inhaled? Now I'm wondering what is the purpose of this preparation? Anyway, it is quite hard to prepare such anaesthsias at home so instead you can try out the old and reliable chloroform. Which you can buy from a chemist.But if you really want to prepare it by yourself then-Fill a glass with 1/2 L of bleach and lower down its temperature. Now add about 10ml of acetone(which has not been adulterated) to it or just keep the ratios 1:50 for both the compound. Leave the glass aside(Keep on adding ice to make sure the temperature remains low) for about 20-25 minutes.(when the temperature rises you will find a cloud like formation in the glass) After that allow the compound to settle(this will take about 30 minutes). Now you will see bubbles or white ppt at the base, this when extracted through a seperation funnel is called chloroform. Advise-if you are thinking of something mischievous then let me warn you that if the dosage goes wrong someone's gonna die or in my language राम नाम सत्य हैं।
Difference between iv sedation and general anesthesia?
It's more subtle than you might think. The ACTUAL difference occurs when you lose your protective airway reflexes, but that's not something we can monitor. MANY times, IV sedation turns into general anesthesia. It's very easy to do - just give more. Even so-called "conscious sedation" turns into general anesthesia more often than it should. People can still breathe on their own with general anesthesia given this way, and things usually go well. You may have actually been awake the whole time, though, and just not remember it. There is a drug called midazolam that makes you amnestic. So, you might have had sedation, and you might have had general. No way to know at this point.
Wisdom teeth question from a very screwed over person.?
Okay I am going to be getting my wisdom teeth removed here in like a couple of months and I have one massive problem. I can not take shots at all. For I have a huge fear of needles and anything sharp. For if I see a needle I spas out uncontrollably and blood pressure rapidly reaches not so safe levels(found out at doctors office). The second issue is that I can not swallow pills for every time I do try I tend to puke due to my heavy gag reflex. The third is that I hate sharp objects I can not be in the same room with anyone holding a large knife at all and just thinking about any of it at all or seeing anything come near me I will flip out. Then of course with laughing gas being more effective for the gas has reality little effect on me due to previous trials before which took about 20min for me to fell only partially numb and that was only at my feet. So are there any methods of knocking me out with something other than any injection or of the above?
What is the difference between local anesthesia and general anesthesia?
If I hit your head with an iron rod or you take large amount of alcohol, you'll reach a different kind of sleep. That is primitive general anesthesia. If you pinch such human, he/she will not easily wake up. It feels great in controlled way, that is basic of drugs used/abused for amusement. Many IV, solid used for General Anesthesia are infamous for abusing. Before Chloroform was used, alcohol, opium etc used for "anesthesia". The art is that, for alcohol, the steps are crossing slowly one by one. But with modern general anesthesia, within few seconds just everything goes away. Head just shuts down. It needs huge assistance by the anesthetists with modern equipments to keep the human alive. General anesthesia cuts off the central nervous system's activities resulting in unconsciousness and usually loss of sensation. The drugs act on brain. In very simple language - human is knocked out. General is named as there is generalized lack of pain of the whole body. On the other hand, sometimes, for sitting or sleeping oddly or after applying ice for longer time, our foot or hand feels odd for a short time, it feels heavy, if you pinch, pain will be less. We say "numbness". That is primitive local anesthesia. Local means local. Local to the injection needle. Local anesthetics works at "local" nerve were applied. Anesthesia means no pain. Where injection will be given, local to needle there will be no pain or rather sense. In broader sense, local anesthesia is a group of methods. Basic local anesthesia needs no anesthetists or equipments. One a 5ml syringe will work fine. "Advanced local anesthesia" are more difficult than General Anesthesia by needed skill. Again anesthetists & equipments needed.
