Whether you relish the prospect of being on call from home or fear losing your job to a more consistently performing robot; automated anaesthesia delivery systems are increasing in their use and sophistication. In this podcast, Rik Thomas talks to Professor Thomas Hemmerling from the McGill University in Montreal and head of the Intelligent Technology in Anaesthesia Research Group about his recent paper describing the provision of anaesthesia to 20 patients undergoing thyroidectomy in Italy, while sat over 4000 miles away in Montreal. Professor Hemmerling describes the process, problems and future development of teleanaesthesia and the implications for practitioners and patients.
