A request to all surgeons

If you’re at a crucial stage of the operation and are about to do something like slice through a kidney, clamp a major blood vessel, pull on the uterus etc… will you please let the anaesthetist know. You guys are pretty good at warning us when you are going to start, but after that, there's usually a whole load of silence and not much communication from you.

Remember, we can’t see what you are doing from where we are and a little warning about things makes our job so much easier.
