Anaesthetic Machine


The anaesthetic machine gives you anaesthetic and fresh air throughout your entire operation. It will also help you to take big, deep breaths when you’re tired and sleeping. The doctor and nurse in charge of your anaesthetic will set the machine so that it’s perfect for you and helps you sleep and stay well throughout your operation. The sleeping machine is often called an anaesthetic machine at the hospital.
