How do anesthetics work?

The anesthetics work bypreventing sodium ions from going from one nerve cell to the next. an explanation of how it works goes like this... the anesthetic molecules bind to a nerve cell and block the openings through which the sodium ions are released. But the molecules dont bind to a nerve but somehow the ions arent captured by the other nerve cells which prevents them from carrying the pain signal to the brain.

Next step for doctors?

The next step for doctors is to unravel the details of how anesthetics work at the cellular level and to find ways so that the side affects don't happen.
