You call yourself an anaesthetist - do you
really know what anaesthesia is ?


Your answer:

Our analysis:
"Yes" You know too much. Read "A Philosophical Approach to Anaesthesia" and you will see how little you knew.
"No, and I don't care" A difficult though widespread problem, further analyzed in the first part of "A Philosophical Approach to Anaesthesia" in order to explain how anaesthetists lost touch with the basic concepts of anaesthesia.
"No, but I am interested" Finally a book for those who are not seeking simple answers to complex questions. This book is for the stimulation of thought (but not attempting universal agreement) while opening up neglected topics of our profession.
