Heritage Centre blog - celebrating 75 years of Anaesthesia

In 1946 the Association launched our new quarterly publication, Anaesthesia with a foreword from the then president of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. As part of the celebrations in the run-up to the anniversary the Heritage Centre has published a series of blogs looking back at some of the key developments within anaesthesia throughout the decades, since the journal's inception.
