Every year, millions of people undergo surgery. Yet few truly understand what happens to them during the procedure - especially what the anaesthesiologist does to ensure their survival and well being. An anaesthesiologist disarms your body chemistry; keeps you alive while you're subjected to manipulations that would otherwise kill you; and ensures your safe return to consciousness. By controlling postsurgical pain, this physician profoundly affects the speed of your recovery. Yet despite their crucial role, anaesthesiologists are often the unseen doctors. This guide demystifies the surgical process by providing patients with detailed information that should make them better-informed consumers.
