World Anaesthesia Day 2014

16 October is the 167th anniversary of the world’s first recorded successful use of ether as an anaesthetic which took place at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA in 1846.  The date is now globally recognised as World Anaesthesia Day in respect of the importance of this event.

To mark the anniversary, The British Journal of Anaesthesia has selected a collection of 10 articles which have been made available for you to read free online for the next three months.
