it was james lister who did
Joseph Lister developed antiseptic surgery, saving innumerable patients from the dreadful pain and death of post-surgical infection by ensuring that surgical wounds were sterile. He reduced the mortality rate of amputations from over 40% down to 5% by introducing asepsis to surgery. He also invented the use of catgut sutures (stitches) which could be sterilized before use and are absorbed by the body so useful for internal suturing. He was knighted by the queen after treating a problem she had in her left armpit
i dont know the answer i want the answer myself
What jobs did Joseph Lister have throughout his life? He worked as mechanic in his early adult life then later on went on to teaching mechanics to others to those interested in building an fixing of engines.
Joseph Jackson Lister invented the achromatic microscope in 1826. His son, Joseph Lister was a surgeon who began the idea of antiseptic surgery. He wanted to kill microbes that caused infections such as gangrene in wounds. So he developed a technique where he sprayed phenol or carbolic acid to disinfect wounds and medical instruments. His contribution to sanitation in the medical field caused a decline in infection and death in his patients.
Joseph Lister became famous in the 19th and 20th century, he pushed the concept of keeping things sterile in the operation room. he also worked with chemical antiseptics to treat wounds.
He used carbolic acid to sterilize surgical equipment, and also insisted on the use of clean gowns, closed windows in the operating theatre, and sterilizing the room and its surroundings prior to surgery.
Post surgery, he maintained a similar vigilance on the need for sterile environments. It was mistakenly believed that risks occurred during surgeries and less so afterwards. He helped changed this view.
the maximum no of teeth in a humans body are 32 teeth.
Sir Joseph Lister (1827-1912) was the English surgeon who first used antiseptic to kill bacteria.
it was important because before him people were dying from surgery because the wounds got infected. so he invented phenol to clean the tools and wounds.
he died on the 10 February 1912 in Walmer, Kent.
Joseph Lister introduced the first aseptic technique to surgery ( critical! Students and physicians scrubbed their hands with chlorinated lime instead of soap and water) because of the rates of childbed (puerperal) fever - a contagious disease caused by an infection passed to pregnant women by their doctors, who frequently moved from patient to patient, and even from autopsy to patient, without washing their hands.
Type your answer here...He had researched gangrene and infection, Lister had seen carbolic spray used to treat sewage, after experiments he found that a thin mist of carbolic acid sprayed over the wound during surgery limited infection. By following this with careful bandaging the wound would heal without any gangrene or infection.
by pooping on the toilet yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa poooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooop
some surgeons complained that carbolic spray cracked their hands, soaked the operation rooms and made the room smell unpleasant
Lister was always doing new experiments and changing his methods; his critics simply said that he knew that his theories were incorrect but Lister was just trying to find something better than carbolic spray
No, he received a higher honour.
The baronetcy that Lister received in 1883 is considered of greater prestige than a knighthood. And his Order of Merit in 1902 is one of the highest honours he could have recieved.
1847 was when the idea of germs first came around when it was discovered that if doctors washed their hands it reduced the risk of infection
Joseph Lister, 1st Baron Lister, OM, FRS (5 April 1827 - 10 February 1912) was an English surgeon who promoted the idea of sterile surgery while working at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. He successfully introduced carbolic acid (phenol) to sterilize surgical instruments and to clean wounds, which led to reduced post-operative infections and made surgery safer for patients.
