What if I wake up in the middle of the operation?
What if I die during surgery?
If you have ever been under the knife, you might understand something of the apprehension surrounding the hidden and mysterious world of anaesthetics.
In this ground-breaking book, If in Doubt, retired consultant anaesthetist Dr Keth Wilkinson shares a frank and unique glimpse into this little understood profession. Drawing on real-life stories from a career that spanned nearly four decades, three of which took place in a small island hospital where he was required to know every aspect of anaesthesia, he sets out to answer the important questions - from what it takes to train and maintain the vital skills of the anaesthetist to the day-to-day challenges, and always the humanity.
