Research shows that Anaesthesia can help forget Disturbing memories




A latest research published in Science advances has confirmed that Anesthesia plays a major role in helping trauma patients forget disturbing memories. Many studies have been conducted by researchers worldwide to prove the same. This latest study further investigates the effects of anesthesia and how it can be useful in developing a technique which would help people forgetting harmful memories arisen due to past trauma, anxiety or drug addictions.

Here’s how the research was conducted. A Sample of 50 participants was taken and they all were showed 2 unpleasant and disturbing images through presentations. One was about the kidnapping of kids while the other one was a horrific car accident. After a week, the memories from one of these incidents were re-activated by the researchers, and the participants were asked basic questions about what they remember.

After the reactivation of the memory, all the participants were injected with propofol which is an anesthetic, followed by a few minutes of endoscopies. The group was chosen from a hospital where people were already scheduled for endoscopies.

After this, final testing took place. The scientists tested all the test subjects and asked them how well they remembered the incidents. The people who were asked immediately after could remember both the incidents. But the people, who were asked questions after a time-gap of 24 hours had no idea that their memory was reactivated. Also, they had no idea which memory was re-activated and which wasn’t. This led to a conclusion that there is a clear link between anesthesia, reactivation and the timing helps in taking the disturbing memories away.

Our correspondents asked few questions to the team of which is an anaesthetic billing company and actively monitors research around anesthesia around the world. They helped us prepare this news report. How this information is used in further studies and what conclusive result do we get from there is yet to be seen.

What Interferes with Successful Breastfeeding?




While breastfeeding is ideal, it comes with many difficulties new parents might face.

After experiencing the intensity of labor and delivery, many new parents are left exhausted. Despite this fatigue and surviving pospartum, new parents soon learn the importance of managing the needs of an infant. Putting aside their own desires, parents learn to quickly adapt.

Exhaustion and recovery are not the only things that discourage parents from breastfeeding. There are a variety of other woes that can make it difficult for a lactating parent to continue to choose this option. 

While 83 percent of women breastfeed at the beginning of postpartum, there is a drastic reduction by 6 months, resulting in only 56% of babies still being breastfed. 

Engorged Breasts

When a lactating woman’s milk comes in, she may experience intense pain and discomfort. The breasts typically become overly filled with milk because they have not yet regulated their supply. This engorgement can continue throughout the breastfeeding journey for a variety of reasons.

If the baby’s schedule changes, a woman’s breasts can become overly full. If the parent misses a feeding, breasts can experience discomfor which can lead to breastfeeding infection. If a woman becomes preoccupied at work and does not make time to pump, she can experience discomfort. 

If breast engorgement is not treated properly, milk ducts can become blocked, and if a woman does not work to move the milk through her breasts (via feeding her baby, pumping, or expressing the milk), this engorgement can lead to further problems and may cause clogged milk ducts.


One of the biggest concerns beyond the pain a woman experiences with engorgement is infection. This is known as mastitis, and leads to a woman experiencing not only breast pain and warm breast tissue, but also flu-like symptoms that come with fever, chills, headache, and further exhaustion.

In order to help prevent infection, regular feedings are essential. Often, the best mastitis treatment, at least for early symptoms, is to massage the breast in a warm shower and express the extra milk.

Furthermore, by working with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), parents can have a great resource on how to best deal with, treat, and alleviate these problems. 

Not only is an IBCLC a great resource in helping prevent breast infection, but a great source for your breastfeeding journey to encourage and educate you in best practices. 

The best way to achieve breastfeeding success is to utilize the many tools that an IBCLC offers. 


To exclusively breastfeed your baby can be quite overwhelming and exhausting. Between nightly feedings, cluster feedings, and pumping sessions for working mothers, breastfeeding is difficult to maintain. Unless a woman is properly supported by her family, friends, and workplace, the chances that a woman will continue to breastfeed are significantly impacted.

Culture also impacts the likelihood of a baby being breastfed beyond 6 months. The CDC discovered that parents in the Southeast United States are less likely to breastfeed their children past six months. This was in contrast to the Northwest, where business policies and the culture is more breastfeeding-friendly and supportive. 


Despite the nutritional benefits afforded to a breastfed baby, there are many obstacles that can be discouraging for parents on their breastfeeding journey. From exhaustion to pain to lack of supoort, parents have many reasons to give up. 

To increase your chances of success, surround yourself with supportive individuals, reach out to an IBCLC, also known as lactation consultants, and gain the necessary tools required to provide your child with the healthiest option available – you!
