    This article was written by a surgeon just for fun , he is kidding with his friends who work as anaesthetists :

    The 7 Reasons To Be Anaesthetist:

    1. You get to switch people off from talking by putting them to sleep.
    Twitter limits talk to 140 characters. Anesthetist can do that to their patients too. They only need to ask enough pertinent questions, and in goes the milky solution and the tube to whiz them off to sleep. How cool is that? I sometimes wish I could do that to my patients, particularly the non-operative dizzy ones.


    2. You are most up to date with the news.
    The anaesthetist is always listening to the gossip around town. In one theatre they will hear about the general surgeons’ who’s who. In the next theatre, the orthopod’s who hates who. In the next they listen to the plastic’s who augmented who. Still in the next theatre they hear the neurosurgeon’s who buys who. The talks among the nurses, technicians, surgeons, trainees, etc. They are always up to date with gossip. Or ”˜news’ as it is often called in the healthcare industry.


    3. You become really, really good at Sudoku.
    The anaesthetists have so much ”˜leisure’ time sitting down during surgery (they call that ”˜work’). Once the patient is asleep, out comes the Sudoku. The speed at which the endotracheal tube goes in is well correlated to the speed at which the Sudoku is extracted form the handbag. I’ve seen some really complex mind boggling sudokus done by anesthetists. Amazing. They get lots of practice at work.


    4. You can handover the patient at the end of your shift.
    This is one of the beauties of anaesthetics. While we surgeons have nightmares about our patients, anesthetists get to hand over the patient at the end of their shift. The good ones, bad ones, unstable ones, etc.


    5. You get to finish reading a novel/newspaper/magazine/tabloids while getting paid.
    See reason number 3. Actually, you also get to pay your bills, organise your holiday, bid on eBay, shop on Amazon, purchase a new car, do yoga, eat, drink, sleep, and sometimes even brush your teeth, all while the patient is asleep. Well, in short, you get to do what you do at home in the convenience of work.


    6. If you don’t like the surgeon, you just have to lift up the sterile barrier.
    It’s always interesting when that happens. I have the luxury of working elbow to elbow or face to face with all types of surgeons. I’ve got no blood/brain barrier I could lift. When they yell at me, well, they yell at me. I have to face the music. And that’s also often when the anaesthetic side suddenly lifts up their barrier and I can almost hear the muffled giggles behind.


    7. And this is probably the main reason they do anaesthesia: You get to pass gas at work.
    Now who wouldn’t want to be paid for passing gas all day?

    It's just like underwear complaining about elastic to which it's is attached ..the waist ...
    Both can't survive without each other.
