The Riddle of Shock: About

The Riddle of Shock is the second in a series of four exhibitions commemorating the work of medical teams in the First World War. It was displayed in the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre from July 2015- July 2016.

The next exhibition, The Price of a Mile, explores the anaesthesia and pain relief available during the Battle of the Somme, and the medical equipment and techniques available to surgical teams faced with unprecedented numbers of casualties.

The Anaesthesia Heritage Centre is open weekdays 10.00-16.00. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.aagbi.org/heritage.
