Okay, I'll bite. The friendly representatives of an anesthesia device company sent me a nice email reminding me that October 16 was Ether Day, or now called World Anesthesia Day. Since I was on call yesterday, and I was literally up for 24 straight hours, I had totally forgotten about this historic day and what it means to anesthesiologists.
The medical device company sent this nice graphic of the history of anesthesia. Of course they specifically highlight all the great contributions their equipment has made towards our field. Now this is by no means an endorsement of the company or its products and I am not receiving anything for this. I just think it is interesting and a bit informative.
