is a treat not a medicine… at least that’s what we know. Australians, however, have a different opinion.
If you’re a patient heading to surgery, wouldn’t you become anxious? Instead of using only Midazolam, an anesthetic medicine, the Australians replaced it with a blend of the substance along with chocolate! The University of Western Australia
found that chocolate is sweeter, delicious and certainly everyone’s favorite!
Perth’s Princess Margaret Hospital for children has already tried it and is witnessing the positive impact it has. Chocolate can be a drug children accept and tolerate without adding more bitterness to an already traumatic experience.
