What is the name of the drug used on a cloth against the mouth and nose to knock people out?

What is the name of the drug used on a cloth against the mouth and nose to knock people out?

Chloroform or ether: Theoretically, any inhalational anesthetic gas can be used inappropriately in this manner. Originally ether and chloroform was used, or abused, this way as an anesthetic, but chloroform was found to have toxic side effects. Ether has since been replaced by more stable, reliable, and effective inhalational (gas) anesthetics like isoflurane, sevoflurane, and desflurane. Do not try this at home! ...Read more

Are the muscles responsible for twisting rotation the same ones responsible for body flexion (abs, sides)?

Yes: "are the muscles responsible for twisting rotation the same ones responsible for body flexion (abs, sides)?
The answer is yes.
Each side of the core/trunk of the body has these abdominus obliques muscles. When they work individually, the body turns in that direction. Working together and simultaneously, they help the rectus abdominus muscles, to bend (ie, flexion) the body. ...Read more

I was just diagnosed with spondylolisthesis 9-10 mm anterolisthesis L5 on S1, in neutral, flexion and extension. What "grade" does this mean?

I was just diagnosed with spondylolisthesis 9-10 mm anterolisthesis L5 on S1, in neutral, flexion and extension. What "grade" does this mean?

"Probably" 3: The degree of a spondylolisthesis is measured not based on the mm of slippage, but rather percent of slippage. That takes out any errors due to magnification. Grade I is 0-25 percent, grade II is 25-50, Grsde III is 50-75 percent, and grade IV is 75-100 percent; the percent is based upon what percent one vertebrae is shifted over the other. Usually a 9 mm slip would be grade III, but can vary. ...Read more

Partial or complete tear to the posterior cruciate ligament can also cause some knee pain, though it is usually accompanied by some swelling. If the pain is mostly localized to the anterior kneecap or just below ...Read more
