Discover what an anaesthetist does at this interactive drop in session. Come and learn how to observe, measure, and monitor a patient during an operation, and find out how important these observation techniques are!
Suitable for ages 6-12.
This is a drop in session, so people can turn up at anytime between 10.00-16.00, with no need to book, and it’s free. There will be four stations (see below), and each one will have equipment that anaesthetists use to monitor a patient, which the young people can have a go at using. The activities at each station are based around the observation and monitoring techniques that anaesthetists use to keep us alive!
At this station young visitors will explore the cardiovascular system and discover how to measure their pulse. They will see how it increases or decreases depending on their activity.
At this station, visitors learn about their breathing and respiratory system. They will count and listen to their breathing.
Young visitors will learn about airways and how to maintain them.
At the mixing station children will mix ‘drugs’ after having worked out the quantities using their own or a fictional person’s weight.
