"Many people need to think of anesthesiologists as insurance. Usually our job is boring and we like it that way."I guess so. Some time ago there was an anesthesiologist in the Virginia Beach area who did not bother to monitor the blood pressure of his patients while they were under. He just wrote down some good numbers in his report, but never actually took the blood pressure. Finally somebody noticed (why not earlier?), and he lost his license. Personally, I think I have heard of machines that do that and and keep the records themselves. That would make the job even more boring.The first time I went under I was about 10-12, and I had my tonsils out. The doctor used ether (other stuff had not yet been invented). He told me to take a deep breath, and, trusting child that I was, I did. THE STUFF WAS TERRIBLE. Then he had to hold me down. The last thing I remember is him saying to me "Don't worry, it don't hurt much". My last thought before going under was "This guy is operating on me and he does not even know good English!" Well, it was in Texas.
