Hadassah Anesthesiologists Work Around Woman’s Fear of Entering a Hospital

When a woman who needed dental surgery became hysterical with fear as she drove up to the hospital, unable to gain the courage to enter, Hadassah Medical Center Senior Anesthesiologist Prof. Alex Avidan and Prof. Eliezer Kauffman, Director of Dental Anesthesia, came out to her car, all the necessary equipment in tow, and gave her some anesthetic--while she was still seated in her car. Once she was on her way to falling asleep, they carried her out, put her on a gurney, covered her with a blanket, and brought her into an operating room. When she woke up, she was already in the recovery room.
