Do people fart during surgery (under general anaesthesia)?
No, its called a paralytic ileus. All bowel functions cease.
The only one who knows for sure is the one who has their head underneath the sheets..
Yes and even feses can come out on their own
funny you should ask this Q
i was put out for the dental removal of my back tooth
then when i was coming around i felt a hand slapping my face and a soft voice calling my name,i slowly opened my eyes and was about to say oh hello but insteadFAAAAAAAAARTpffffts come out first
the nurse just walked off-lol
gas and air -etha i think it was,called
ahhh, the dreaded "code brown". never seen it happen while somebody was asleep, but it can certainly happen during emergence. during awakening, people can cough- any valsalva maneuver can expel contents from the rectal vault. flatus, stool, foreign bodies... anything can come out. but it's fairly unusual.
no they do not fat during surgery..your bodily functions stop
If it's during a colonoscopy, then yes, quite a lot. But that's not fair, because the gastroenterologist is pumping air in.
Otherwise, occasionally, but rarely. You're much more likely to wet yourself.
Most of the time it is the Anesthesiologist that farts, more than one reason they call them gas passers.
