About this video:

"Most concerns revolve quite rightly around the fear of the unknown." Doctor Dinner, Anesthesiologist of New York Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center, reviews the worries that patients have entering anesthesia and tries to dispel them.

Transcript:

Dr. Dinner: Most concerns, quite rightly, revolve around the fear of the unknown. Our specialty has evolved in a way of providing safety above all else. The track record is extraordinarily good and our morbidity and mortality rates are infinitesimally small. Most concerns, quite rightly, revolve around the fear of the unknown. Patients are not particularly forthcoming about putting their lives in someone else's hands and having a complete and total immediate trust when they essentially just meet that individual. The concerns initially revolve around - am I going to come into this operation and come out alive? Yes, statistically it is overwhelmingly in favor of the patient to come into the surgery and not only make it out alive but be comfortable, safe, sound and enter a healing phase.
