Alcohol After Anesthesia Effects
Alcohol and local: No, it does not.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not recommended: Drinking alcohol after general anesthesia may exarcebate some of the remaining effects of the anesthesia and some of the drugs often administered during anesthesia (opioids. Other sedatives etc...) including: sedation, grogginess, nausea/vomiting and headache. If you drink alcohol on a daily basis, it is very important to let your anesthesiologist know.
See below: This should not cause problems if you did not drink to excess. I would suggest trying to keep it to a minimum, and then hydrate well for the next few days.See 1 more doctor answer
What will happen if you drink alcohol in less than the recommended 24 hours after general anesthesia?
Alcohol + anesthesia: The answer ranges from nothing to profoundly disabling depending on exactly what drugs were given and in what amounts. It also depends on whether its the first hour after anesthesia or the 23rd hour. Lets just say its a bad ide.
Not at all: These drugs will not have any effect on local anesthesia.See 3 more doctor answers
Depends: If you are having a procedure performed under local anesthesia alone, drinking alcohol afterwards may not create any problems. If you are sedated, drinking alcohol immediately afterwards definitely could create some possible problems. With either scenario, drinking alcohol in combination with any pain medications that may be prescribed would not be advised.See 4 more doctor answers
Please let me know if there is any problem with drinking alcohol after receiving dental anesthesia?
Drinking: After local anesthesia is fine however you may bite your lip or tongue and you may drool on yourself so I would wait. If it was sedation anesthesia. No do not drink too much being detoxified by your liver and kidneys. If you had an extraction definitely no for at the least three days. Talk to your dentist.
In old days when alcohol was used in surgery, was it's purpose to knocked the person out like anesthesia or just try and dull the pain?
No: I understand this is just hypothetical, but it would not do well for a couple reasons. First, you v would have do drink enough to knock you out which would be unsafe. If you didn't, your inhibitions would be down and would want to fight the surgeon. It also can thin you're blood. The process of general anesthesia is very involved and includes a paralytic as well as sedation normally.See 5 more doctor answers
Indication for et intubation during general anaesthesia include:a.Alcohol intoxicationb. Active tbc. Small bowel obstructiond. Pregnancye. Hiv infect?
A couple things: First, alcohol is actually a drug and has sedating properties. Not only that, if one drinks too much, it is actually possible to be poisoned and to stop breathing. Those could be considered depressant effects. Also, excessive alcohol use over time, may lead to someone having a depressed mood. Too much alcohol can adversely affect all organs in the body (except the kidneys). Good question.
High blood pressure: Long term heavy drinking, causes high blood pressure. Also the liver damage known to be caused by heavy drinking changes some enzyme that shows in our blood test. Moderate to heavy drinkers also develop macrocytosis " enlaged red blood cell".
