After looking at this chart I think we are all going to want to take a minute for silent thanks that we were born in a modern age where going to the doctor isn't more dangerous than the actual incident or illness we have that sent us there.
The graphic covers everything from electroshock therapy to pain relief, and when you start reading about things such as "bone saws" and "carbolic smoke balls," you'll start to wonder how anyone ever made it to the 21st century. Our modern side of the chart has amazingly simple solutions in comparison — little things such as washing your hands and dry medical dressings apparently go a long way.
When you consider the even more modern medical applications we write about here — bionic eyes, skin factories and tricorders, for instance — you really get a sense of how far we've come from the days doctors were called "Sawbones" for a terrifyingly real reason.
