Dia do Médico Anestesiologista ou Anestesista
(Anesthetist). The Anesthetist’s Day commemorates the day on which the first surgical intervention with general anesthesia took place, in 1846. On that day, at 10 am, surgeon John Collins Warren managed to cut out a neck tumor from a 17-year old boy, Gilbert Abbot, in Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. The patient was anesthetized with ether, as performed by dentist William Thomas Green Morton, who had invented an inhalator for this. In Brazil, anesthesiology is a medical specialization, which is recognized by the Associação Médica Brasileira (AMB), and Conselho Federal de Medicina (CFM). Anesthesiologists are registered at the Sociedade Brasileira de Anesthesiologia (SBA).

Inauguration of Ecomuseu in Foz do Iguaçu (PR)
A few years earlier, Sete Quedas Park, located at the Paraguayan-Brazilian border, was inundated in order to create a vast lake for the generation of hydro-electric power at the Itaipu power station, one of the largest hydro-electric power stations in the world. A memorial for the lost park was created in the Ecomuseu, which also hosts interesting exhibitions of the local flora and fauna, and a memorial with photos of all 4500 construction workers who participated in the construction of the power station. A scale-model shows the area of the border region of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.
