Anaesthesia Proverbs

A simple operation does not equal a simple anaesthetic

Never insert a central line on a full bladder or an empty stomach

Never, ever, take a short cut

Make your first attempt the best attempt

Airway, breathing, coffee

Arrive, berate, criticise, delegate, exit

Your lack of planning does not constitute my emergency

If you’ve thought about a tube, it’s time to tube

You cannot cure stupid, but you can RSI it

Laughter is not the best medicine.

Propofol is.

There are few situations that cannot be improved with a can-do attitude and a s***load of ketamine

The surgeon is the captain of the ship.
The Anaesthetist is the captain of the sinking ship.
