Useful video on anaesthesia for patients
GPs might find this new video about anaesthesia, produced by The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA), a helpful resource in informing patients preparing for a procedure performed under sedation, local or general anaesthesia.
The video explains what anaesthesia is, the role of the anaesthetist, and answers some common questions asked by uncertain patients. There are other videos which may also be useful, including videos with closed-captions, on the ANZCA YouTube Channel.
