scientist 54: the anesthetist – Dr Kentish is an anesthesiologist (2013)

Have you ever had surgery in an operating theatre? If like us you wondered what the anaesthetist does while you’re out, hear Dr Jessica Kentish tell what her work entails. We met Dr Kentish on her holiday to Cambridge, UK and she told us about the chemicals she uses in her work in Denver, Colorado. The Dr goes on to explain why nitrous oxide, normally used as an anaesthetic in dentistry, is less useful at high altitudes.
