Who’s Up For Knee And Hip Operations With Local Anesthetic To Save Us From ‘Climate Change’?

You can do your part to stop the climate crisis (scam). What’s a little pain and massive discomfort during long operations (both typically take about 2 hours), listening to all the scary noises of bones, all the blood

Hip and knee operations ‘should be done under local anesthetic to help cut carbon emissions’

Using local instead of general anaesthetic for hip, knee and other operations could help cut greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study.

Drugs used for general anaesthetics contain greenhouse gases such as nitrous oxide, which can stay in the atmosphere for up to 114 years and contribute to global warming.

Switching the one million annual hip and knee replacement operations in the United States to local anaesthetic would save the equivalent of 7.3 million miles driven in a car, according to the study, which was based on a one-year experiment at a hospital in New York and published in the journal Regional Anesthesia & Pain Medicine.

Surgeons at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York carried out 96 per cent of their hip and knee replacements using local anaesthesia in 2019, and estimated they saved the equivalent of 60,500 car miles.

That compared to an average of 75 per cent normally done under general anesthesia.

One has to wonder how many fewer hip and knee surgeries that hospital is now doing. I’m damned sure not interested in staying awake for that. I’ve had surgery on ankle (2 screws and a plate, later removed) and leg (stainless steel rod, kneecap moved to do it, still in), general for both. How about you, do you have interest in staying awake for these to stop the climate scam?

Perhaps we should force everyone who claims to believe that the current warm period is mostly/solely caused by the actions of mankind to get locals for every operation where feasible.

It came as the government was warned that the NHS is not doing enough to cut its environmental impact. The health service has the biggest carbon footprint in the public sector, contributing 6.3 per cent of the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions, and using the same amount of water as the entire country of Estonia.

The parliamentary environmental audit committee called on the NHS and Public Health England to eliminate coal and oil powered heating, to tackle fluorinated gases such as those used in asthma inhalers and to speed up a switch to electric vehicles.

It’s hard enough for old people to get knee and hip replacement surgeries in England under their Single Payer system

The biggest single source of emissions within the health service is pharmaceutical production; one year of kidney dialysis emits greenhouse gases equivalent to seven return flights between London and New York.

Aw, hell, let’s just let them die instead, and kill off those who need the knee and hip surgeries. They’re usually old anyhow, right? No longer a need for their carbon pollution. They could be saving the next generation!!!!!
