‘Will I wake up during my operation?’
‘Will I wake up after my operation?’
‘Will I be the same when I wake up as I was before?’
These are some of the questions patients have about anaesthesia. In this talk we’ll explore historic accounts of surgery before anaesthesia before dispelling the common fears and myths which surround anaesthesia.
