Patient Resources & Information

The information below provides general information that may be of assistance in preparing for your procedure.  Where possible, we have linked the information to the leading professional anaesthesia bodies.

ANZCA (Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists) provides information for patients including a number of informational videos.  Their information can be accessed through these links.

ASA (Australian Society of Anaesthetists) has some good, easy to read information about all aspects of anaesthesia and what to expect.  They also have specific information sheets for particular types of surgery.  You are strongly encouraged to have a browse through their information.
