HUA TUO

HUA TUO IS ONE OF THE GREATEST DOCTORS IN THE CHINESE HISTORY.  HE IS THE FATHER OF ANAESTHESIAOLOGY FOR SURGICAL OPERATION.  NEARLY TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO WHILE CHINA WAS IN THE THREE-KINGDOM PERIOD, THERE WAS A WARLORD CALLED CAO CAO WHO SUFFERED FROM A SEVERE HEADACHE WHICH CAUSED HIM GREAT PAINS FROM TIME TO TIME.  ONE DAY CAO CAO CALLED IN HUA TUO IN THE HOPE OF CURING HIS PAINS.  HUA TUO SAID THAT THE ONLY WAY AND ONCE OF ALL TO LESSEN HIS PAINS WAS TO DO A SURGICAL OPERATION ON HIS HEAD.  BEING A SUSPICIOUS PERSON, CAO CAO WAS SHOCKED AND THOUGHT THAT HUA TUO REALLY WANTED TO KILL HIM.  SO HE PUT HUA TUO INTO PRISON.  HUA TUO WAS VERY UPSET AND DISAPPOINTED.  REALIZING THAT CAO CAO WOULD EVENTUALLY KILL HIM, HE BURNED ALL HIS PAPERS AND THE FORMULA OF ANAESTHESIAOLOGY.  HE THOUGHT THAT IF HE KNEW NOTHING OF THIS ART HE WOULD BE A HAPPIER PERSON AND THUS THIS ART WAS LOST SINCE THEN.
