Einstein A Go-Go: Going Inside (And Under) The History Of Anaesthesia

Writer, historian and anaesthetist Christine Ball calls in to Einstein A Go-Go to chat about her new book The Chloroformist: The Historical Biography of Joseph Clover. Written after she found a mysterious casebook at the Museum of Anaesthetic History, The Chloroformist follows the introduction of anaesthesia and how it fundamentally changed surgery and the way it was practiced. Christine chats to Dr Shane about the modern practice of anaesthesiology and why the role of anaesthetist is always changing.
