The anaesthetist demonstrates how to make the mask using layers of gauze or how to customise gamgee (thick wadding) for the same purpose. He then proceeds to anaesthetise a patient using chloroform. Using intertitles, it is suggested that continuation (of anaesthesia) should be via the Junker method.

Whereas convalescence is about allowing the body to heal, rehabilitation is about encouraging the patient to be active in their own recovery and their possibly changed lifestyle. He illustrates his talk with examples of how different hospitals have approached these issues and the effects this has had on patients.
