Book by MacQuitty, Betty. MacQuitty plants herself well within the Morton supporter's camp, oversimplifying a complex series of human interactions and relationships by dismissing Wells' role in the "discovery" (excuse the scare quotes) and adpotion of surgical anaesthesia, especially when treating ether, nitrous oxide, and cholorform as historically identical substances.

We expect to feel no pain during surgery or at least to have no memory of the procedure. But it wasn’t always so. Until the discovery of general anaesthesia in the middle of the 19th century, surgery was performed only as a last and desperate resort. Conscious and without pain relief, it was beset with unimaginable terror, unspeakable agony and considerable risk. Not surprisingly, few chose to write about their experience in case it reawakened suppressed memories of a necessary torture.

Anesthesia (from Greek lack of sensation ) is the condition of having bodily sensation, especially pain, blocked or temporarily . He was also famous for his contribution to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine

Anesthesia (from Greek lack of sensation ) is the condition of having bodily sensation, especially pain, blocked or temporarily removed. It is almost impossible to imagine in our modern age that throughout the vast majority of human existence, humans had very little relief for pain. During painful childbirth, injury, illness and early surgery; people were dependent on courage, herbs, drugs or alcohol to ease pain, often with limited success. He was also famous for his contribution to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine.
