World Anesthesia Day commemorates the first successful demonstration of ether anesthesia on October 16, 1846. This ranks as one of the most significant events in the history of Medicine and took place at the Massachusetts General Hospital, home of the Harvard School of Medicine. The discovery made it possible for patients to obtain the benefits of surgical treatment without the pain associated with an operation. The date (16 October) is now globally recognized as World Anesthesia Day in respect of the importance of this event.
CARE Hospitals, Visakhapatnam observed 'World Anesthesia Day' on 16th October 2016 and celebrated the occasion of 170 years since its demonstration.
