Surgery before the 16 October, 1846 meant one thing for the patient most of all: Pain. It was also 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. This talk will discuss the changes that took place in surgery after the discovery of anaesthesia.
This talk will be delieverd by Iris Millis, Museum Officer of the Old Operating Theatre and Dr David Wilkinson, former Consultant at St Bartholomew Hospital, London; medical historian, and Past President of the WFSA.
This event is part of the Royal College Of Anaesthetists’ 25th Anniversary celebrations.
After this talk, the celebratory Anaesthesia Trail in the museum will be launched!
Doors will open at 6:30 PM.
*Access: The Museum is only accessible through a 52-step spiral staircase.
