Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune process characterized by inflammation and demyelination of axons in the brain and spinal cord (Schneider, 2005). According to Maclean (2010), MS is one of the most common debilitating neurological disorders in young adults. My intent of this research project is to explain the pathophysiological process and become familiar with the implications of anesthesia related to MS. This research will enable me to prepare a safe, individualized anesthetic plan, taking all essential precautions when caring for a patient with multiple sclerosis.
