Arabs were skilled in Anaesthesia

Author: M Al Fallouji   Published in:     British Medical Journal 1997; 314:1128

A very interesting article published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) 12 April 1997 Vol 314: 1128.  It was sent as a Lettter to the Editor.

However, the BMJ immediately saw the importance of this letter and gave it the importance of an article with the title:  'Arab were skilled in Anaesthesia'; the BMJ also attached a picture (something rarely done in letters).

The article was written criticising an author who skipped many centuries without the use of inhalational anasethesia.  This is when Arabs and Muslims were using the soporific anaesthetic sponge for surgery of the abdominal cavity during the medieval dark ages of Europe.
