What’s your poison? The science of anaesthetics

From alcohol to ether and beyond, in this episode we explore the science of anaesthesiology with clinical anaesthetist, Dr Katie Grant.

What are the dangers? What kinds of chemicals are in a modern anaesthetist’s drug cabinet? How do they work? How do decide what cocktail to give?

Do patients under a general anaesthetic dream?

And if you could make them simply forget about pain of an operation performed without anaesthetic after the fact, is that ethical?
