With all the powers of Morpheus, the Greek god of sleep and dreams, the anesthesiologist seems to delight in his role as he smiles down on his vulnerable patients. Anesthesia was used in 95% of Civil War surgeries. Sulfuric ether had been discovered in Europe in the 1830's and was first used as an anesthetic in 1846.
