Brain Damage: NFL ‘Gets It,' American Society of Anesthesiologists Still Appears ‘Asleep'
Date:2/2/2010

om routine anesthesia over-medication">anesthesia over-medication affects 99.9% of everyone 'going under', while anesthesia awareness affects only 0.1% of patients.

The ASA trumpets a study showing brain monitors prevented ‘only’ 80% of awareness under anesthesia for the 0.1% of patients as ‘insufficient’ evidence of their usefulness. ‘More study needed,’ the ASA venally concluded.

"The ASA apparently justifies routine anesthesia over medication with the known risks of dementia that can last hours, days, weeks, months, or, in the worst cases, permanently," opines prominent anesthesiologist, Dr. Barry Friedberg. "Big Pharma profits from more, not less, drug sales."

"National brain monitor use could mean as much as 30% of anesthesia drugs would not be sold while Americans would still get excellent anesthesia," says Friedberg. “Big Pharma contributes millions of dollars to the ASA which can't function without.”

Repeated head trauma (NFL) or too much alcohol (Alcoholics Anonymous) isn't good for the brain. Recent studies show too much anesthesia is also ‘traumatic’ and not good for patients’ brains. “Hardly surprising,” notes Friedberg.

"The nine essential questions to ask before surgery are on www.GoldilocksAnesthesiaFoundation.org. Ask these questions on the first surgical consultation. Demand a brain monitor for ‘going under’ or go elsewhere," says Friedberg.
