How Does Anesthesia Work?

But, howِ doِ these body-numbing elixirs work.
Prior toِ theِ invention ofِ anesthesia inِ the mid-1800s, surgeons hadِ to hack offِ limbs, sew upِ wounds andِ remove mysterious growths withِ nothingِ to dull theِ patient’s pain butِ opium orِ booze.
While theseِ drugs mayِ haveِ numbed theِ patient, theyِ didn’t alwaysِ completely block theِ pain, orِ erase theِ memory ofِ it.
