Anesthesia [electronic resource]: Clinical Introduction

This program explains how anesthetics modulate and inhibit the conduction of neural stimuli. After contrasting sleep with unconsciousness, the structure of the nervous system and the transfer and suppression of electrochemical signals are addressed. The particulars of how anesthesia functions are then discussed, with a focus on the properties of volatile anesthetics, sedative hypnotics, analgesics, muscle relaxants, and opioids; their effects on the brain and other organs; and methods of administering. Specific agents include ketamine, midazolam, propofol, etomidate, halothane, desflurane, fentanyl, lidocaine, and nitrous oxide.

This collection of 25 video clips features new drugs, procedures, and alternative therapies helping to fight the pain "pandemic." With an average length of 90 seconds, each mini-case study functions as a visual aid for instructors as well as physicians or medical support staff who want to increase communication with patients.

Hypnosurgery [electronic resource]

The use of hypnosis in medicine has a long history. In the early days of anesthesia, surgeons often used the trance-inducing technique as a fail-safe measure-and today the concept is being revisited. This program presents a scientific investigation into the idea that hypnosis can reduce or even replace the use of anesthesia. Exploring the merits of making the procedure available to more patients-especially those too weak for, or unsuited to, conventional pain mitigation-the program includes both contemporary and archival examples of the effectiveness of surgical hypnosis. Footage shot during a hernia operation performed under hypnosis only-with no anesthetic at all-highlights the medical realities involved.
