The Australian Society of Anaesthetists has created the following pages of information for patients and their families.

The 'All About Anaesthesia' website provides helpful and thorough information on all aspects of anaesthesia including: what anaesthesia is, how anaesthetics are given, the role of the anaesthetist and how they care for you, how anaesthetics affect you and how you can affect your anaesthetic. 

Read case stories from typical patients and find information about any reservations that you may have under the ‘common fears’ section.
