Short History of the Department
 
 
         The Government General Hospital was started in the year 1665 by the British to cater to the medical needs for the soldiers of the East India Company. Later in the year 1835 a medical school was established and further upgraded to that of a Medical College in the year 1850. In the year 1855, it received recognition from the Royal College of Surgeons, London and later from the Royal Colleges of Scotland and Ireland. It was affiliated to the University of Madras in 1857 when it started functioning.
In the early years the anaesthesia department was a part of Department of Surgery. Dr.Francis. DARCS was posted in the year 1927 as the first Professor of the separate Anaesthesia Department. He held the chair for twelve years from 1927 to 1939.
Dr.V.Rajagopalan. FFARCS one of the pioneers of Anaesthesia in India, held the Professor’s post for twenty one years from 1953 to 1974. It was during his tenure the department of Anaesthesia in Madras Medical College developed to such a great extent.
Apart from the clinical activities, the department of Anaesthesia started its Academic activities in 1959 with the starting of Post Graduate Diploma Course (DA). This was followed by starting of Post graduate Degree course (MD-Anaesthesiology) in the year 1966. The department celebrated its Platinum Jubilee (75 years) in the year 2003
The Madras Medical College and the Department of Anaesthesiology of this college includes various other medical institutions in the City of Chennai attached to it as follows.
 
  1. Government General Hospital, Chennai-3
  2. Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Egmore, Chennai-8
  3. Institute of Child health, Egmore, Chennai-8
  4. Institute of Social obstetrics (KGH)-Chepauk, Chennai.

  7. Institute of Thoracic Medicine, Otteri, Chennai.
  8. Government Peripheral Hospital, Periyar Nagar, Chennai.
  9. Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, K.K.Nagar, Chennai.
The academic and administrative activities of the department of Anaesthesiology in Madras Medical College and its affiliated institutions are carried out efficiently under the auspices of the Professor and Head of the department along with a team of Additional Professors, Associate Professors and Assistant professors of Anaesthesiology. The Nursing staff and technical staff maintain the Operating theatres, Intensive Care Unit and the Manifolds of Medical gas distribution systems.

Department Museum:
The Govt. General Hospital precedes the introduction of modern Anaesthesia to the Mankind (16th October, 1846) and had seen the development in this field from the day one. Many types of equipment used in the olden days of Anaesthesia are available in the hospital as well as in other old hospitals. We have started collecting that invaluable piece of equipments and established a Museum of Anaesthesia and we are in the process of making it one of the best museums dedicated to this subject.
