Human beings try to find relief from the pain from the beginning. In earlier times, plants were used as anesthesia. A few of the plants were mandrake plants (previously known as Mandragora), opium or hemp, and cocaine. All these plants were drunk by the patients to get relief from pain or during any cutting of flesh or burning of the skin. Because of the addiction to some of these plants, these are banned and technology has entered the medical field. Now many injections and other solutions are there to get anesthesia.

Anesthesiology is the branch of medicine that deals with the total perioperative care of patients before, after, and during surgery. The main use of anesthetic medicine is to support a patient’s vital functions during operations. It is now a highly recommended, effective, and safe field of medicine. Anesthesia is used as pre-hospital emergency medicine and in intensive care units, or during transporting of a critically ill patient between facilities. An anesthesiologist is a doctor who practices anesthesia. The main work of an anesthesiologist is to provide medicine according to the age, weight, and gender of the patient and to evaluate, monitor, and supervise the patient before, during, and after surgery.
