A recent study released by the Royal College of Surgeons says the lingering effects of alcohol taken by a surgeon the day or night before an operation may lead to errors during surgery. These illusionary effects may take longer than expected to leave the body and may still be felt even if the alcohol had been flushed out of the blood supply – often manifested through drowsiness which may in turn cause the surgeon to falter in the operation theatre.
It is therefore important for surgeons to keep in mind these possible dangers, and must make sure to refrain from excessive alcohol intake if they are expecting to do critical operations the next day. Simply put, surgeons must not risk patient’s life by engaging in potentially hazardous drinking binges.
