I’ve always found it a little disconcerting how scientists don’t fundamentally understand how anaesthetics work. Of the thousands of major operations every day, almost all of them require you to be reliably made unconscious for a period of time, and then to be awoken at the end. So, this book is an attempt to elucidate what we know about general anaesthetics and what we don’t. 

Our protagonist is Harry, a fit young adult who has just been diagnosed with appendicitis. Come and join him as he undergoes surgery to fix his appendix with the help of the diverse group of chemicals known as general anaesthetics.

    I am a professional anesthesiologist and I use this as my handbook. I highly recommend it as required reading for any professional in the medical field. Five stars!
  • Great Overview

    By Sportspro3363
    I have a BA in Chemistry and an MBT (Master of Biotechnology) and this is one of the best medical overviews I've ever read. It concisely describes all aspects of general anesthesia in a very easy to understand way. If you are interested in med school or just going under the knife, this is an excellent resource to learn the basics. It even has a very useful bibliography. Very well written! Thanks!
