Everyone knows that anaesthetists play a vital role during surgery. But they remain unseen for the major part of a patient's journey in the hospital.
Think Like an Anaesthetist invites us to see the inner workings of an anaesthetist's mind. In this book Dr Murali Thondebhavi shares the various habits anaesthetists adopt in the operating theatre and in their personal lives which can improve our everyday life.
What strategies do they adopt to ensure safety? How do they handle crises?
How do they manage their personal time and life? How do they keep themselves up-to-date?
Using mental models to explain complex ideas, this book offers a glimpse inside an operating theatre. Read this book to improve your thinking, avoid biases, take better decisions, understand risk and fear, prevent mistakes, communicate effectively, handle crises, combat stress, manage time, and sleep well.
This is a book for every budding anaesthetist and for everyone wanting to understand how anaesthetists make successful surgeries happen.
