Hypnosis as a Psychosomatic Weapon in the Anaesthesiologist’s Armoury
In recent years, the general concept “anaesthesia” has been divided into three components, sleep, muscular relaxation and pain relief. This division has helped to focus attention on the anaesthesiologist’s main fields of activity:
Anaesthesia and analgesia for surgery.
Intensive care and resuscitation; postoperative supervision of vital functions (Holmdahl 1962, Safar 1963).
Management of pain (Bonica 1953, Lassner 1964).
