Did you know?

Did you know surgical anesthesia was not used until 1842?

Although there have been many forms of anesthesia throughout history, it wasn't until 1842 that William Edward Clarke used it for the first time in Western surgical practice. At the time, Clarke was an undergraduate student in Rochester, New York. He administered ether, through inhalation, in advance of a dental extraction. Today, this might seem insignificant, but until that moment all surgeries had been performed without anesthetic. That meant that surgical procedures were limited to what a patient could handle before flailing or dying of shock. Most surgeries at the time were amputations. Even then, an amputation was considered a last resort, when death was near inevitable. The advent of ether as a general anesthetic paved the way for surgeons to take on more invasive procedures, like tumor removal and heart surgery, saving more lives than ever before.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
