Everyone thanks their surgeon after a successful operation. But what about the person who brought you through that surgery - the anaesthetist? What does he or she actually do for a living? If you have ever wondered about the missing hours while you ...
were asleep, the action behind the anaesthetic mask that you can never see, this book will be an eye-opener. Writing for both a lay and professional audience, the author uses a mixture of memoir, travelogue and history to present a very personal insight into his speciality, delving into a seemingly limitless and often hilarious collection of stories to open up the doors of the operating room and to trace the development of modern anaesthesia and its importance in the pages of social progress. While You Sleep imparts far more than it promises. It will delight from page one.
