Cardiac Anaesthesia: The early years

This talk is the first in a series commemorating the 75th anniversary of Anaesthesia, the journal of the Association of Anaesthetists.

In September 1947 Alfred Blalock, the surgical pioneer who developed the ‘blue baby operation’ visited England and operated successfully on 10 patients at Guys Hospital. From that time the era of cardiac surgery in the UK began. Join us on this journey through the early years of cardiac anaesthesia as we follow the development of the specialty from 1947 to 1959, including the early development of cardiopulmonary bypass, and some biographical notes on the key players.

The greatest development in anaesthesia in the first decade of this publication was the introduction of curare. Join Ann Ferguson as she guides us through the history and use of curare in South America, and its subsequent introduction into medicine and later anaesthesia.
