Ever Get That Feeling That You're Going to be a Star?
Posted on 8/15/2016 by Dr. Michael Allard
It's not a new trend, but it's a steady one and we love it! You know what we're talking about - the video of the person just out of oral surgery who can't stop laughing, crying, yelling, and generally carrying on with nonsense.
It probably has to do with the combination of the gauze induced speech impediment, and their tweaked perspective on things coming out of general anesthesia.
Youtube's Obsession with Post-Op Aesthesia Patients
Youtube is filled with moments of genuine hilarity when it comes to people coming out of oral surgery. It's a good thing our loved ones now have cameras ready to go as soon as we snap out of it to record our most embarrassing moments. General anesthesia is the reason people seem confused or a little bit out of sorts when they come to.
We Can't Deny That it's Funny
It's definitely hilarious to be witness to a loved one (or anyone) coming out of general anesthesia, we have known this for years. We use general anesthesia to relax our patients and provide them a painless, comfortable experience during their surgery.
Being unconscious for surgery is a nice option to have and we use it to help those who would otherwise not be able to handle such a scenario. The side effects that come with it are usually, confusion, disorientation, and many times, bizarre and hilarious emotional outbursts. We have seen people crying, laughing, singing, and it never gets old.
General Anesthesia is Safe
While it is hilarious, it is also extremely safe. It's so safe that the entirety of the dental medical communities in the world use it to great effect. The risk of long-term complications is extremely low. The main thing to watch out for is drug allergies, which is why we ask you about any known reactions to medications well before surgery.
