This book examines anaesthetic practice from the sociological perspective of science and technology studies. It looks at the roles played by different participants, many of which would not normally be acknowledged as 'participants' (machines, equipment, unconscious patients), and the effects of such contributions with respect to how actions in healthcare become 'accountable' in a professional sense. Important concepts also considered in this book are the ways in which practitioners learn their skills and develop 'embodied' knowledge.

'[This book] is based on ethnographic research, both detailed, real-time observations and in-depth interviews, but it also benefits from Goodwin's past experiences as an anaesthetic and recovery nurse. It is obvious that she knows her ethnographic field very well, a knowledge which allows her to provide the reader with very detailed and helpful descriptions of otherwise confusing medical procedures.' Ericka Johnson, TechnoscienzaAbout the Author:

Her current research interests focus on the development of embodied knowledge, its place in clinical practice and the processes of learning involved. Her doctoral and postdoctoral research centred on the notions of participation and accountability in healthcare practice. Along with colleagues Dr Buscher and Dr Mesman, Dawn Goodwin is currently editing a book of ethnographic studies of diagnostic work drawn from a range of disciplines.

Descripción Cambridge University Press. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW PRINT ON DEMAND., Acting in Anaesthesia: Ethnographic Encounters with Patients, Practitioners and Medical Technologies, Dawn Goodwin, In recent years, evidence-based medicine (EBM), clinical governance and professional accountability have become increasingly significant in shaping the organisation and delivery of healthcare. However, these notions all build upon and exemplify the idea of human-centred, individual action. In this book, Dawn Goodwin suggests that such models of practice exaggerate the extent to which practitioners are able to predict and control the circumstances and contingencies of healthcare. Drawing on ethnographic material, Goodwin explores the way that 'action' unfolds in a series of empirical cases of anaesthetic and intensive care practice. Anaesthesia configures a relationship between humans, machines and devices that transforms and redistributes capacities for action and thereby challenges the figure of a rational, intentional, acting individual. This book elucidates the ways in which various entities (machines, tools, devices and unconscious patients as well as healthcare practitioners) participate, and how actions become legitimate and accountable.
