      Hi LAX

      Anaesthesia is mainly for preventing a person from feeling pain during surgery.

      Hi Lax,
      To add, it’s helps by making the muscles relax, induces temporary loss of memory, loss of reflex actions, loss of response to pain etc. Anaesthetic is administered by qualified professionals during surgery.
