Part of a series apparently aimed at the inexperienced anaesthetist. This title (part one of two) focuses on incorrect and correct procedure around the patient in the induction and maintenance of anaesthesia. Through a series of dramatised scenes, a female patient is shown being incorrectly cared for and then the same scenario is repeated with a male patient but demonstrating good practice. Then there are five key points to consider for the well-being of the patient in the operating theatre.
