Event description

Description

An intriguing and fascinating talk about the changes in surgery after the discovery of anaesthesia.

Surgery before the 16 October 1846 meant one thing for the patient most of all – Pain!

But it also was difficult for the surgeon to work under such circumstances. With the advent of anaesthesia this scenario changed and new possibilities for surgeons and patients opened up.

A talk by Iris Millis, Museum Officer of the Old Operating Theatre and Dr David Wilkinson, Past President of the WFSA, Previous Vice President of the AAGBI.

This unique event forms part of the Royal College of Anaesthetists 25th Anniversary celebrations, and the launch of the anaesthesia Old Operating Theatre’s trail.

After this talk, the celebratory Anaesthesia Trail in the museum will be launched!

Doors will open at 7.00 PM.

*Access: The Museum is only accessible through a 52-step spiral staircase.
