Imagine a world without anaesthesia. From tooth extraction to painless births, to complex organ transplants, medical science has advanced leaps and bounds, thanks to advancements in the field of anaesthesia. Although less celebrated, anaesthesia has been and always will be a major pillar of support to medical science.

Today, the most complex surgeries that were once beyond human imagination, are possible due to parallel developments in the field of anaesthesia. Reversible loss of consciousness, muscle relaxation, and overall care for the patient when surgery is in progress, form the essence of anaesthetic practice. Many anaesthetists are independent practitioners of pain management and in-charge of the ICU’s in several hospitals.

This book, brings to the fore, the many intricacies of human lives and how anaesthesia plays a crucial role in addressing them. The motivation behind writing this, is to bring to light, the many components of anaesthesia, through the experiences of the anaesthetist. By focusing on select cases that demanded high levels of skill, a thorough knowledge of the patient, and an overarching passion for the field, the author has ensured that this book will be the perfect reference and aid, when one is confronted with unexpected complexities in one's career as a practicing anaesthesiologist.

Dr. Vasanthi Vidyasagaran is a consultant anaesthetist, practicing anaesthesia in Chennai for nearly four decades. She acquired her degree from the prestigious Madras Medical College and joined government service, to make a contribution to anaesthetic practice and teaching, focusing on quality and safety. She considers it an honour to have retired from her Alma Mater, as Director IAACC, RGGGH – Chennai.

PREPP – a unique teaching program, conducted every year by Kilpauk Medical College exclusively for post -graduates in anaesthesia, is her brainchild. She founded the Anaesthesia Academy, to standardize teaching of anaesthesia to all post-graduates in Chennai. Practicing and teaching anaesthesia is her passion.

She has conducted many public awareness programmes including radio talks, television interviews, write-up in popular Tamil and English newspapers. One that she deeply cherishes was when the famous writer Sujatha attended one of the programmes and wrote about it in the Tamil Magazine Anantha Vikatan. She also conducted a beach walk, in which more than 200 anaesthetists participated.

Through this book, Dr. Vasanthi aims to reach out to the anaesthesia fraternity and upcoming doctors and share her experiences in the field.
