Eponyms are found throughout medicine. They provide succinct and convenient identification for diseases, syndromes, clinical signs, surgical instruments and operations. Anaesthetists use eponyms such as Magill forceps, Mallampati score, Sellick's manoeuvre and Mendelson's Syndrome. National and international anaesthesia societies have eponymous awards and lectures. This book has been written to describe who these eponymous individuals were, when and where they worked, why they invented equipment, a technique or a scoring system, and why they were chosen by their peers for eponymous honour.
