OR-Live: Live and On-Demand Medical Healthcasts

If you've wanted to know what goes on in the operation theater, here's a website you'll love ! The Independent comments: "Major surgery has always been mystifying as well as frightening. A life hangs in the balance while the surgeon deploys his or her skills - but always in secret, behind closed doors. Now, anyone can get a grandstand seat at the operation itself. Like armchair travel, armchair surgery is a reality. Thanks to modern technology and the internet, it is possible to see for the first time how surgeons insert a knife into a patient's chest and stitch new blood vessels on to their failing hearts. Surgeons perform 3 million operations a year in Britain and most people about to go under the knife never question the competence of the person holding it. The website offers video footage and live broadcasts of operations as they should happen, but without the swooning relatives, bitching interns and conscience-stricken surgeons trying to do what's right for their patients."
