Significance of Anesthetics in the development on medicine

Im not sure how to answer. Any help?
Are you teaching yourself or do you have a school and class ?
What do your notes or textbook say?
Have you used google?


Start by assessing the significance of anaesthetics. Do you know what they are?
Then apply them to medicine and what they allowed the medical profession to do which they could not before. Also what was the effect on healthcare and on patients.


Target Explain and analyse historical events and periods studied using second-order concepts (AO2:6)Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the key features and characteristics of the period studied (AO1:2)


Level 1 Basic explanation of aspect(s) of significance
Answer demonstrates basic knowledge and understanding that is relevant to the question. Candidates identify aspect(s) of significance, which are relevant to the question. Explanation at this level is likely to be implicit or by assertion. For example, patients under chloroform no longer suffered pain during operations.

Level 2 Simple explanation of one aspect of significance Answer demonstrates specific knowledge and understanding that is relevant to the question.
Candidates may progress from a basic explanation of significance by simple reasoning of one of the identified aspects, supported by factual knowledge and understanding.For example, anaesthetics were significant because they meant that since James Simpson started using chloroform in 1847, patients no longer were conscious during the operation, so they weren’t at risk of dying from shock of the pain.


Level 3 Developed explanation of aspects of significance Answer demonstrates specific knowledge and understanding that is relevant to the question. Extends Level 2.Candidates may progress from a simple explanation of significance with developed reasoning considering two or more aspects of significance, supported by factual knowledge and understanding. In addition to a Level 2 response, candidates make additional developed point(s). For example, anaesthetics were also significant because they enabled more complex surgery such as operations on the eye to be carried out because the surgeons had more time to develop and perform more complicated surgery because the patients were unconscious.For example, anaesthetics such as chloroform were easy for surgeons to handle and less explosive and inflammable than ether so they could be used during difficult labours, which meant that women did not have to suffer pain when giving birth.

Level 4 Complex explanation of aspects of significance Answer demonstrates specific knowledge and understanding that is relevant to the question. Extends Level 3.Candidates may progress from a developed explanation of significance by explaining the relationship between aspects of significance, for example over time, supported by factual knowledge and understanding. For example, anaesthetics were significant in the 19th century as it meant that patients no longer suffered pain and died of shock. This enabled surgeons to begin to develop more complicated procedures. Today modern anaesthesia is significant as it uses a mixture of chemicals to produce gradual loss of pain and consciousness, thus modern anaesthetics allow brain surgery with consciousness, which in turn enables doctors to gain knowledge about the body. 7-8

im doing exam questions to get my teacher to mark.
I have some knowledge like:
chloroform puts patient to sleep - easier for surgery and more complicated ones. james simpson.
but thats not to do with medicine tho .
