In 1912 an unnamed man, aged 44 was referred to Hugh Morriston Davies at University College Hospital London because he was suffering from what had been diagnosed as a persistent case of bronchitis and emphysema, possibly suitable for a new type of surgical operation. His bronchitis had been worse over the winter and he had also felt pain in the right side of his chest for the previous four months.

But devices and techniques developed by anaesthetists were just as important. Ivan Magill, for example, consultant anaesthetist to the Brompton Hospital from 1921 to 1950, worked closely with the hospital’s surgeons during this phase of rapid expansion. The increasingly important role played by Magill or fellow anaesthetist Michael Nosworthy at St Thomas’s Hospital, illustrates the shift of focus away from the lone, heroic surgeon to the surgical team.
