Patients were questioned pre-operatively to assess the level of their knowledge with regard to anaesthetic qualifications, anaesthesia and the role of anaesthetists.
Thirty-five percent did not realise that anaesthetists were qualified doctors and only 25% could mention any duties that anaesthetists might have outside the operating theatre.
However, those questioned were better informed about the anaesthestist's role in monitoring the patient during surgery and recovery.
