General anaesthetic. Patient's vital signs being checked during a general anaes- thetic in an operating theatre. In the background is a female anaesthetist. The patient has a pulsemeter on her finger and a blood pressure monitor further up her arm. Because anaesthesia can cause vomiting, slowed breathing and irregular heartbeat, the anaesthetist keeps a careful check on pulse and breathing throughout the operation.
