The following research article in a particular field of the history of medicine, written by two eminent experts, Drs Adnan A.
Ibn Sina’s The Canon of Medicine
Al-Mazrooa and Rabie E. Abdel-Halim, is composed of two parts. This first part surveys the use of narcotics for pain relief from Antiquity up to the Renaissance; the second part is a historical investigation in the contribution of the Islamic medical tradition to develop anaesthesia methods and uses. Reviewing some of the medical texts written by Muslim scholars from the 9th to the 14th century, the authors present evidence that anaesthesia monitoring and resuscitation were practised by Muslim scientists more than years ago.

Little is known about the history of anaesthesia in the period of more than years between Graeco-Roman times and the 16th century when the Renaissance started. In Europe, that period is usually referred to as the Dark Ages when no progress was kiyab in medical kitzb    . However, the situation in kiyab East was different    . The following section is dedicated to survey the development of anaesthesia during that period by reviewing the following books: Those authors were medical scholars who lived in the period between the 9th and the tivb centuries.
Their contribution to pain relief has been recently evaluated . In the following section, we will evaluate their contributions to anaesthesia and resuscitation. Both of the historians, Ibn Khallikan  in the 13th century, qznun Ibn Kathir  in the 14th century, documented that Urwa Ibn AI-Zubair in the beginning of aanun 8th century developed leg gangrene for which amputation was zl.
Literally, the word ‘Al-Murquid’ in Arabic means a drug that induces deep sleep. Evidence about the popularity of this anaesthetic comes from finding entries about Al-Murquid in four general-purpose Arabic language dictionaries compiled during that era    .
Also in the literary book Sayd Ul-KhatirIbn al-Jawzi in the 12th century referred to the anaesthetizing effect of Bhanj . Al-Murquid was used either by ingestion or inhalation or rectally . In the form of infusion, they used particular types of solanum, cannabis, opium and mandrake by ingestion.
The last three drugs were also administered rectally on a plug which had to be changed hourly. On the other hand, opium, mandrake and henbane were also used by inhalation in the form of odorants. As wild lettuce has a mild soporific effect it was used, whether fresh or boiled, as an adjuvant to any of the previous ones or in cases of insomnia . They not only precisely determined the required dose of each drug but also they were able to fix the length of time which the anaesthesia was to last with great precision, for example, Ibn Sina  gave a dose of one ‘mithkal’ of mandrake for hours of general anaesthesia.
However, Ibn al-Quff  most qznun in an attempt to reduce the dose used, and hence decrease the risks of toxic effects, advised care on the part of the surgeon to use operative qanu that minimized pain. The knowledge and practice of anaesthesia reached its peak in the beginning of the 14th century as evidenced in Ibn al-Quff’s book on surgery Al-‘Umda Fi-‘l-Jiraha  the mainstay kitb surgery. Unlike Paulus of Aegineta Ibn al-Quff gave detailed information in his book on the phenomenon of pain and clearly stated that pain relief qanunn surgery should be the responsibility of a second medical man other than the surgeon performing the operation.
Al- Tabaaei meaning the physician was to look after pain relief by giving AI-Murquid to allow Al-Jaraaehi meaning the surgeon to perform the kiitab.
This represents the first report, in the literature, on the a of the anaesthetist. In that era they also realized the importance of monitoring during anaesthesia as, according to Sigrid Hunke  a third medical man used to be present putting a finger on the pulse during the operation. It is interesting to note this method of monitoring, by palpating the pulse is still practiced nowadays and is referred to in anaesthesia text-books as a simple non-invasive method.
In the memoirs of Prince Osama Ibn Al-Munquiz  we found evidence that the Tabaaei physician and Jaraaehi surgeon also worked together as a resuscitation team.
Both were called for the resuscitation of a warrior who collapsed immediately after an arrow hit him.
Anaesthesia 1000 Years Ago (II)
For the resuscitation of patients with severe weakness and cachexia due to dysphagia, Ibn Zuhr in the 12th century, recommended enteral feeding through a tube made of silver or strengthened tin introduced into the throat gently and gradually, to avoid its nauseating effect. Contrary to qahun predecessors, Ibn Zuhr also advocated rectal enteral feeding and described how the bladder of a goat filled up with the nutrient fluid and fitted with a silver sl tied to its mouth could be used for this purpose.
For the resuscitation of suffocation due to upper airway obstruction Ibn Sina in the 10th century recommended the introduction of a tube made of gold or silver, or similar metal, to assist breathing. However, before attempting intubation, Ibn Sina  tried conservative measures including clearing the secretions using a wicker stick covered with a piece of cotton-wool.
If such measures failed and the patient’s life was threatened, Ibn Sina qamun tracheotomy. Therefore, although Paulus  7th century quoting Antyllus 2nd centurydescribed the technique of tracheotomy, the operation remained in disfavour.
This state of affairs lasted until ribb Islamic era when AI-Razi  9th century and later Ibn Sina  10th century spoke favourably of the operation and refined the technique. Although AI-Razi spoke of tracheotomy as a drastic measure he reported seeing patients with wounds in the throat through which breath came out, yet the wounds eventually healed and patients survived.
However, the credit for proving that tracheotomy is not a dangerous operation goes to Al-Zahrawy  in the 10th to 11th century and Ibn Zuhr  12th century.
Al-Zahrawi, in his book Al-Tasrif liman ‘ajaza ‘an al-ta’lif reported from his own experience the successful management of a suicidal cut wound of the trachea and concluded that tracheotomy is not a dangerous procedure.
On the other hand, Ibn Zuhr  in his book AI-Taysir described in detail his animal experiment of performing tracheotomy on a goat that completely recovered following the operation and lived for a long period thereafter. Ibn Zuhr’s application of an experimental model to a clinical problem was the forerunner of the method by which many current surgical procedures were developed. The authors who came after AI-Zahrawi and Ibn Zuhr such as AI-Bagdadi  and Ibn al-Quff  recommended tracheotomy unreservedly in life-threatening upper airway obstruction not relieved by other means, and described the technique with more refinements and in more detail.
It is interesting to note that Ibn al-Quff’s indications for tracheotomy specifically included the failure to introduce cool air to the interior. Ibn Abi Usaybi’a  in the 13th century in his book of medical biographies ‘Uyun al-anba’ fi-tabaqat aI-atibba’ documented a case in which a critically ill patient already pronounced dead was successfully resuscitated by the physician Saleh Ibn Bahla who elicited that the patient still responded to painful stimuli, then with the use of bellows, insufflated air and soap root powder into his nose.
According to Jaser this clinical case report documented the use of bellows for respiratory resuscitation years before it was first reported in Europe. The contributions of the above mentioned authors were translated into Latin as early as the middle of the 12th century and greatly influenced the European mediaeval schools of medicine well into the 18th century          .
